Whitening skin for Men

by Chris

I want to quote the message which was sent to me by a PGG reader a few days ago asking what is the best way to whiten skin for men:

“Hi Chris. i just wanna know if you guys are also frustrated in getting white skin.are there advantages if you got fairer skin? Would you consider taking whitening pills like *********? Hope you can make an entry about this. Thanks.”

Well, first of all I would like to say thanks to the reader for sending me his question which I am very happy to answer.


The only advantage of having white skin which we are all aware of is that you have a tendency to become a “head-turner”. This is not necessarily because people find you attractive, but because you stand-out from the rest of the crowd where everyone else has this tan “kayumanggi” complexion.


Personally, I don’t think it makes a lot of difference whether you have dark skin or white skin especially if you are a guy. This is because according to surveys, some Filipino women are attracted to men with white skin tone while others are attracted to men with dark skin tone. But if you want some tips on how to improve your looks when it comes to skin here are some of my suggestions:

1. Wash your face
Your face is the first thing that other people notice. More than anything else, it’s very important to keep your face pimple-free and acne-free. Wash your face at least twice a day. Using Master DermaClear-C to remove pimples is effective for me. You could try that too.

2. You can try to use whitening soaps
If you want to whiten your skin, I suggest you try whitening soaps since these are safe and effective to use. Remember to choose one which is dermatologically-tested.
You could also check out Nivea for Men products. Though I haven’t tried it, I’ve received feedback that it’s good.

Nivea for Men advertisement saying football players
should use Nivea whitening if they have sensitive skin
3. Eat Fruits and Veggies
Aside from keeping you healthy, eating fruits and vegetables is known to make a person’s skin glow. So make sure to include them in your daily diet.
4. Pills for whitening – not recommended
I do not recommend taking pills for whitening. These could have side-effects which may or may not be known to date. These are expensive too.
If anyone else have tried ways on how to whiten skin you could share your thoughts by posting a comment. Hope this helps.

wow!! i’ve been wanting to ask you same thing chris. hehehe i definitely agree with you pareng chris. With regard to NIVEA for men, I would recommend their product too. I’ve been a nivea user since college.

Chris August 19, 2007 - 11:03 am

THANKS radz, yes i have heard it’s good but I haven’t tried it myself. maybe one of these days i will.

charleslemark August 19, 2007 - 11:39 pm

My frien is drinking this product, called Snow, that does 2 things: whitens your skin, and burns fat..
Its available in any SM Supermarket, and costs only Php 62.00. Although I haven’t tried it — yet– he says its effective.

Chris August 20, 2007 - 11:43 am

^^^ really? does it have any side-effects?

blake August 20, 2007 - 10:24 pm

hi chris. so what product of nivea would you recommend to whiten the skin?

Chris August 21, 2007 - 12:18 am

hi blake,

i wonder if you were the guest who asked the question.

anyway you could try Nivea for Men Whitening Moisturiser. It’s available in SM supermarkets around 150+ Pesos. based from it’s name it doesn’t only whiten, it moisturizes too.

you could also try papaya soaps. as mentioned, choose one which is dermatologically-tested. remember to stop using any product if you feel that it doesn’t suit you.

i know it sounds weird because i’m a guy recommending these products. but I believe we guys deserve to look good too… 😀

Marky August 21, 2007 - 10:09 pm

Haha Chris, great article. Kasi when you’re fairer, mas madali pumili ng color ng damit… mas clean looking pati… anyways about the pills, it’s glutathione and i believe that it has no bad side effects, actually it is an antioxidant much like vit. c, e, etc., and it is called the master antioxidant which fights free radicals. The side effect of this glutathione is skin whitening and no other negative things has been noted if taken on higher doses, pero syempre lahat naman ng sobra siguro masama..? according din sa research, ok sya sa liver kasi it detoxifies i… haha hindi ako endorser, na curious lang ako kaya nagbasa basa ako…google is my friend, search search lang, hahaha…

Chris August 22, 2007 - 12:06 am

^^^ Hehe thanks marky, may kilala ka ba gumagamit nito? ano results?

I have also made a research out of curiosity and found the same stuff as you did. But I am not really into whitening pills.

Soap, Master and Nivea for Men is already enough for me. 😀

blake August 22, 2007 - 8:38 am

hi chris,
nah, this is my first time to post here. i mostly read your blogs since a friend of mine recommended this. I’ll try to find the nivea product you mentioned. thanks!

Anonymous August 23, 2007 - 4:46 pm

Hi Guys,

I’ve used Nivea for Men and it does clear up and whiten skin. Yung moisturizer meron din SPF something kaya nakaka protect din from UV rays. Try it.


Chris August 24, 2007 - 1:01 am

hi blake – thanks for dropping by.

Jake – Whitening Moisturizer ba yung sayo?

IceClimbingMonkey August 24, 2007 - 8:46 am

Yung Licorice daw nakakaputi. It’s one of the main components of Godiva products.

Naglabas na rin ng products yung BELO. Sabi nila nakakaputi raw. Mura lang yung sabon nasa 50 to 60 pesos yung malaking bar.

Marky August 25, 2007 - 7:45 pm

Hmmm yep yung isa ko friend gumagamit nun and maganda naman result sakanya pumuti sya and skin is really glowing… anyways pwede naman to itake kahit yaw mu magpaputi as a supplement lang once a day yun… hehe… ako naman regimen ko, wash, tone moisturize, hehe although focus ko sa face lang talaga kasi body ok naman maputi ayoko namang maging sobra, face lang expose kasi sa sun kaya mas darker ng mga 2 shades kesa sa body… hehehe… may moisturizer ba ang Nivea for men na may whitening effects? sa face? hehehe…

Chris August 25, 2007 - 9:38 pm

^^^yep pareng marky, meron.

Nivea for Men Whitening Moisturiser. Ayos yun… 😀

Marky August 27, 2007 - 12:28 am

Wow sige matry nga yun, kaso kasi I’m using sunblock na pag umaga, so pano lagay ko nun? after ng moisturizer sunblock naman? or is it the other way around? Haha gotta try that Nivea, how much naman does it cost? Dapat nga try ko yung Olay Total Effects as moisturizer kasi I heard it’s good, pero mejo pricey at around 800ph?! Woah! :0)

Chris August 27, 2007 - 1:01 am

^^^Active ulit ako ngayon kasi konti trabaho tsaka holiday hehehe

Anyway, Nivea for Men whitening moisturizer is less than 200 Pesos last time I saw it. 😀

Marky August 27, 2007 - 7:18 pm

Hmmm wala ko nakita sa watsons, huhuhu… Sige try ko pa hanap, hehehe.. Thanx! :0)

charleslemark August 27, 2007 - 7:28 pm

sorry kung ngayon lang ako nakareply, anyway, wala daw side-effects ung Snow..

Oni August 30, 2007 - 7:35 pm

Hi chris.I was the guest who asked this question. Thank you for making this entry. For sure, its gonna help me. Btw, i am aeta from the mountains of zambales. Is nivea for men available at watson’s? One more thing, do you think Gatsby hairwax gonna work with my kinky hair?

You got great blog. Keep it up.

Chris September 1, 2007 - 1:13 am

hi Oni,

No worries. I appreciate being asked questions especially if I think I would be able to help. =D Anyway, you’re from Zambales? wow that’s cool. I want to go there sometime.

I think Nivea for Men is available in Watsons. If not, try in SM Department Stores. Anyway I’m just curious, how dark is your skin? Is it dark brown, or light brown? Well you could also try the other tips by those who commented here but it’s up to you to find out which method to whiten skin suits you best.

As with Gatsby, you could try the Mat and Hard variant (It’s color black). It will probably work if your hair is quite long.

See you around,

Anonymous March 6, 2008 - 2:07 pm

I use Nivea Men Whitening 5 in 1 facial wash. Effective nga po siya. My friends notice it.

Anonymous March 28, 2008 - 2:13 am

hey chris… are you using soap for your face???
isn’t that bad cause it’s gonna dry up your skin… and a lot of soaps has a lot of ingredients which clogs your pores???
just curious

Chris March 31, 2008 - 1:15 am

Yes, I do use soap on my face. It’s actually important to use one since soap is necessary for cleaning purposes. Just make sure to use a moisturizing soap. 🙂

louie April 2, 2008 - 6:09 pm

hi chris, how about yun pampaputi ng armpit? haha!.. kumbaga yung front side lang niya (i’m not sure if that’s the right term, basta yun sa hindi loob talaga). nagka allergy kasi ako nun high school, di ko na matandaan kung ano yun cause nia. tska hindi pa naman ako masyado aware sa mga ganyan noon. hehe. ano bang mgandang gawin? hindi naman siya maitim na maitim, gusto ko lang malighten man lang sana. any products? btw, i’m from ilocos pa, kaya imposible ang belo, aside from malayo, siguradong mahal. hehe.

radz April 6, 2008 - 7:08 pm

i noticed yong medyo mataba (not all) may maitim na kili2, singit, leeg (likod). Ciguro isa sa mga cause ay yong friction na dulot kaya in the long run, naiiritate sya kaya nangingitim.

sa underarm, i use NIVEA that is for sensitive skin. ung hindi matapang.

sa face, i use nivea facial cleanser or foam for sensitive skin kasi madali magreact ang skin ko pag medyo matapang. i don’t use astringent kasi may alcohol at nakakasunog yon sa balat lalo na pag lagi ka nasa labas. always check the content of the product kung may alcohol.

skin lotion. bihira lang pero kailangan pag nasa malamig ka na environment (office) kasi nakaka dry ng skin. pag mahilig ka sa labas, i use yong may SPF 30 to 50.

soap ko naman, dove or ivory.

i take vit.c everyday. it helps whiten your skin and strengthen your defense against sickness.

patricio.el.suplado May 12, 2008 - 3:24 pm

Hi Chris.

I’ve just found this blog in the BlogFlux directory, it really works noh kasi I was able to find this blog of yours na I can say, is a really big help to me.

Anyway, 17 years old pa lang po ako, and I’m glad na at last, open pala dito ang usapin about whitening tips for men. Kasi diba nga naman, sabi nila whitening is only for women. hmpf.

I’ve took Metathione 500mg last January and mind you, I’ve spent my entire savings on my bank account just to buy one bottle of it. And I was really sad when I realized it didn’t work for me. Imagine, sariling pera ko ginamit ko. hmpf.

I hope you’ll be able to recommend to US effective pills or facial wash. I’ve read some of the comments and I’ll give it a try tomorrow po siguro, bibili ako.

Anyways, thank you for a very informative site.

patricio.el.suplado May 12, 2008 - 3:25 pm

to charlesmark:

curious lang po ako about that Snow na product.

Ano po ba yang “ini.inom” na yan? pills or talagang liquid in a bottle?

I wanted to give it a try kasi.

Thank you.

Chris May 12, 2008 - 11:55 pm

Welcome to PGG Patricio! Thanks for visiting the site. As I said before, Nivea for Men is good. You can try that and also the other tips mentioned here.

patricio.el.suplado May 13, 2008 - 1:50 pm

oh okay..

i’ll give it a try.. thanks!

patrick May 18, 2008 - 10:59 pm

hi kuya chriz i’ll just w8 ur reply tommorow … hope you post your reply about mah question 🙂

cataclysmic May 19, 2008 - 1:40 am

try mo celeteque as your regimen baka kasi inflammed and face mo try any cooling face cream that’s water-based… avoid touching your face! try sensa tea tea facial foam as it has tea tree for inflammation at olive oil for moisturization. use SPF 15 UV block

cataclysmic May 20, 2008 - 6:55 pm

Hi mga dudes! guess what anong nangyari sakin kanina since la ako kasama for malling… I went shopping again for skin whiteners.
Here’s what I have bought:
1. Palmolive Nutri-Milk soap – I am a belo essentials fanatic, pero para kasing konti lng ang ipinuti ko since using the soap and lotion since november last year. Count that, mga 6 months na. So try muna ako nito. Minsan nga Johnson’s Baby milk soap gamit ko or milk bath eh. I know d ako puputi masyado sa mga milk soap and baths pro at least makinis tapos whitening lotions na lng baha dyan.

2. Loofah – for good blood circulation and slough off dead skin cells and for soothenning as well and no soap residue sa skin.

3. Kojie san Kojic acid soap – super effective gamitan mo lng ng whitening mosturizer at UV block.

4. Extraderm Age Defy solution #2 – Anti-wrinkle sya at depigmenting agent. I know po, 23 pa lng ako, pero I am not after the anti-wrinkle effects kasi gusto ko lng ma lessen ang mga pimple scars ko at one time lng to tapos whitening soap at moisturizers na bahala.

I was thinking of buying Watsons’ own brand of 1 liter Whitening Milk lotion + Green tea pero d ako sure if effective. Kahit na generic lotion sya ng Watsons’ mura lng kasi at P99, 1 liter na! good for just moisturizing after using a whitening soap. Anu sa tingin nyo? D ko pa kasi binili kasi I have Skin white Power whitening pa eh, plus, Nivea for Men Whitening Lotion, plus Hype Gluta-C Intensive Whitening at ang huling plus na swak-na-swak sa budget nyo: BIOLINK VCO SUN DEFENSE SPF 20!!! @ only P69 for 100mL! D ba sulit kasi the higher the SPF, usually higher din ang price pero ito mura na our very own VCO pa!

Golden rule in whitening: Skin whitening is useless if with adequate UV protection.

cataclysmic May 24, 2008 - 10:01 pm

Hi Kicker! Dude try mo mga exfoliating solutuons like makipeel, age-defy by extraderm, etc. that’s for the elbows and kness lng ha… NIVEA for Men whitening roll-on… super effective!Puti na UA ko medyo may konti lng tan sa skinfold sa part na yon pero nagwhiten na in about 4 weeks of continuous usage.

Chris May 24, 2008 - 10:53 pm

-patrick: i suggest you visit your local dermatological clinic. they can help you to solve your skin problems.

-cataclysmic: thanks for the comprehensive list of advices

-kicker: i’m a fan of nivea for men ever since and I love their products.

hello guyz!!. I’m new here and i read ur comments and suggstions..YUP, whitening s n0t only 4 women but also for men like us…i suggest, USE exfoliants like maxipeel..xmpre, mamumula talaga skin nu 4 d frst 2 wks.. Use m0isturizer and sunblock cream spf 50 and above.. That would really whiten ur skin.. U can choose the strength ,3,2,1 dpendng on ur skin tone..i am using 3..hnd naman ako nhhya coz, i want to feel good everytime na makikiharap sa mga tao dba?..mas vain na nga ata mga men ngaun kesa girls.hehe..isa na ako don..and i recommend MENA cream(pink),aftr usng maxipeel at nyt, then MENA NATUral pearl cream(white) effective 2 guyz..ü..

Jhunzkee May 25, 2008 - 11:39 pm

hello uli!.. Sya nga pala, drink plenty of H2O, take vit.c, vit.e, f my budget, glutathione, UNG MET or GLutawhite or snowcaps,kc un lng ang may mga tamang dosage as what t.v patrol world reported last may 23… Nagssi tlaga ak0 kc LUCIDA pa talaga ang bnili ko..nil0l0k0 nila consumers…hay..cge , keep n touch..

catclysmic May 26, 2008 - 12:06 am


I won’t recommend Mena kasi, kautong namin gamit nyan parang sunog balat nya hindi natural ang dating kasi hindi gradual. Tapos if you have notived xa jeep ha, mga ladies na gumagamit ng mena halata talaga kasi na mumula ng sobra ang parang pinagbalatan mga face nila. Tapos hindi pa trusted name ang mena baka hindi safe at sisirain nya ang kutis mo. so if i were you use trusted names lng… medyo mahal pero safe naman. Low-quality ang mena…

Cataclysmic May 26, 2008 - 12:20 am


Thanks dude napansin mo rin pala anyway pareho tayo na fan ng Nivea for men. Pareng Chris, may goodnews ako sa inyo may Nivea for Men Whitening Lotion na! i bought the 25oml at P190 sa watson’s. May Revitalizing Lotion din na for Men ang Nivea… Try nyo mga dudes…

For Ponds Detox Cream users here like me, suggestion lng mga dudes. Buy na lng kayo ng ponds nyo sa sachet then tranfer nyo sa isang empty small container kasi mas makakamura kayo kasi mahal ang sa tube na 20ml lng naman ang laman ang sachet 10ml pero kahit 2x pa price mahal pa rin sa tube.

3 Ponds Detox creams:

Pinkish white – P16 (10ml sachet), P46 (20ml tube)
Spotless white – P22 (10ml sachet), P56 (20ml tube)
Age-defense Brilliance SPF15 PA++ – P29 (10ml sachet), LA PA TUBE NETO I’M STILL LOOKING PERO WALA PA. Bago kasi eh. This is the best UV block na sure effective at mura pa.

Jhunzkee May 27, 2008 - 12:39 am

Hello peepz…yupz, talagang mamumula ang face m0 with mena f sobrang kapal ang paglagay m0 ni2 sa mukha m0..dpat k0nti lng,ung enough lng na malagyan ng pantay ang mukha pati liig..

cataclysmic May 27, 2008 - 10:06 pm


sobrang mahal ng nivea whitening SPF50 tapos malagkit kahit non-sticky ang nakalagay… notice ko lng ha the higher the SPF rating the more na malagkit sya. wag ka madaming tinitake, POLYPHARMACY ang tawag dyan, makaka-drug-to-drug interaction ka mamaya sa sobrang dami. Latest brand ko po, GARNIER by L`oreal. Super nice din ang water-based UV block ng NIVEA, ang REFRESH something nila na SPF 30… hindi malagkit tapos may glow ka na parang natural skin mo.. whitening din yan

Jhunzkee May 27, 2008 - 11:13 pm

Cataclysmic, hehe..ganyan talaga ak0 daming tinitake.. I know naman f wat na nangyayari sa katawan k0.hehe..kung hnd ny0 po naittn0ng, nars na po ak0,.hehe..wala lng..kaya alam k0 f ever sira na liver k0 or any organs of my body..hehe.. Nagrresearch naman muna ak0 b4 tntake ung mga vitamins..anyway, tnx.. Mahal nga ung nivea sun, but i love nivea sun facial sun block,ung nasa tube..kc i feel very pr0tected,anytym i go out..Ü.. Tsaka, ung tinitake k0 glutathione, vit.c and gloww.gud 4 the liver un..kaya n0 pr0bz.Ü..cge cge, til nxt tym..i’ll be back pag may bago nanaman ak0ng ndsc0vr ab0ut skn whitening..Ü..

cataclysmic May 28, 2008 - 12:17 am

jhunzkee, nurse din po ako. Alam ko yan pero kahit supplements yan they are still categorized as drugs kahit nga vitamins eh, OO andun na ako sa antioxidant properties nyan (i know) pero i is still eliminated sa liver… even vitamins and supplements. May study na nyan about polypharmacy na may lead to certain liver copmplications.

Higher SPF doesn’t mean adequate protection yan ang common misconception. Actually, the higher the SPF rating the more risk for allergic dermatitis and penetration of molecules sa upper layers ng skin is slowed.

SPF 5 = 83% coverage
SPF 10 = 90% coverage
SPF 15 = 92% coverage
SPF 20 = 94% coverage

so you see hahit SPF 70 ka pa or VMV armada SPF 50-60-70 ka pa, will its not money well spent kasi hindi ganyan ka significant ang UV block coverage when it really gets higher… Minsan nga especially after SPF 30 and above na ratings, YOU CANNOT HARDLY APPRECIATE THE COVERAGE KASI NGA IT’S LESS THAN 1% AS YOU GO HIGHER. THE KEY IS REAPPLICATION AND SPECTRAL COVERAGE… THAT IS IF ALAM MO ANG SPECTRAL COVERAGE…





Jhunzkee May 29, 2008 - 10:35 am

cataclysmic May 29, 2008 - 12:53 pm

jhunzkee, biro lng yan sa mena hehehe actually naka bili ako nyan before pero parang d hiyang sa akin kasi parang halata masyado eh… sa gabi lng cguro ilagay pwede pa? agree ka ba? kasi ang katulong namin yan ang gamit at effective ha kasi d lng siya gumagamit ng UV block kaya cguro d natural ang dating sa kanya at take note RDL #3 pa gamit nya, o d ba ang tapang… pinayuhan ko na nga eh. pro mena along i think is good it just that wag lng sabayan ng mga super tapang na exfoliants like mga #2 na strength. tapos if clear na skin nyo wag na mag exfoliant solution beyond 2 months kasi hindi advisable. at walang humpay na UV block SPF15-20. Kng mayaman kayo guys kagaya ni Jhunzhee, mag SPF 50 din kayo hehehe d loko lng… hehehe nag-iinvest ka lng naman sa skincare mo which is a good sign. I think maputi ka na kasi hiyang ka sa mena, ok hindi dark or super puti average lng na hindi mo matatawag na itim…

patricio.el.suplado May 29, 2008 - 7:32 pm

hahaha.. la lng..

natatawa po ako dito, hehe..

ang sosoxal nmn ng mga katulong nio, nagpapa whitening din, haah..

catclysmic May 29, 2008 - 8:21 pm

hay naku pare believe it… pagkakita cguro sa closet ko na 3 palapag ang skincare ko buli rin sya… heheh RDL #3 at mena cream gamit nya kasi hindi natural ang dating… d naman namin pinapakialaman… sa kanya cguro d bale pumuti kahit halata hehehe… satin kasi mga lalake dapat gradual lng kasi baka ma notice agad… mag DUDES, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND POND’S AGE DEFENSE SPF15 PA++ P29 lng sa watsons… galing at mura na UV block at hindi nakaka oily…

I have GARNIER and I am using it… medyo oily at 1st skin ko pero ok lng d naman masyado and besides when it is absorbed medyo ok na… it has SPF kasi eh pero sulit naman. GARNIER is the natural approach of L`oreal skin care. kaya sulit yan tol i tell you.

radz June 14, 2008 - 9:05 pm


Yah,it’s true about GARNIER. Habang tumatagal nag aadjust nga ang skin pero after nito,balik uli ako sa dating brand ko which is NIVEA.Nasanay na rin ako sa NIVEA back in college pa.

To those who wanted a fast whitening effect here’s a recipe

1 box Etta’s skin whitening powder
1 small can alpine milk
1 bottle of Etta’s liquid mixing solution

Put powder into a basin then gradually mix it with the etta’s liquid mixing solution while then pour-in the alpine milk until u get a melted ice cream consistency.. get naked and spread the whole mixture in your entire body and let it dry for an hour.. u would look like a mummy for awhile but trust me its very very effective.i would suggest you do this in the bathroom and make sure the temperature is a bit cool so that you wont perspire while the mixture is drying up in your body..ul see the difference right after rinsing your skin.. do it for twice a week and in just 2 weeks or four sessions you’ll really see the big difference..btw, some parts of your body will feel itchy while the mixture is drying up. its normal kc component ng liquid mixture is hydrogen peroxide but its safe. try using the Likas papaya soap for daily use so that you;ll maintain your white skin.. sobrang effective talaga! Etta’s whitening powder would cost only 200pesos i think plus the liquid mixture which is only around 20 pesos..u can buy them in mercury drug and other leading stores nationwide. am not paid by etta for this. just sharing it to you all!

patricio.el.suplado June 19, 2008 - 8:17 pm

hey.. am back after a very hectic schedule from our class.

anyways, tanong ko lng po kuya chris. since you and other people here recommended nivea for men i bought one for myself last saturday and it cost 109PHP.

i was thinking on how long would it take for me to see changes or at least improvements? hehe.. curious lng nmn po eh.

hoping for your answer. thanks!

radzdude June 21, 2008 - 11:35 pm


Most likely after 2-3 weeks bro. Just avoid too much exposure from the sun starting 10am till 4pm. If unavoidable, don’t forget to wear sunblock with SPF15 or higher.

wesleychu June 22, 2008 - 4:11 pm

to all guys out there being natural is the best. But xempre kailangan din natin ng mga products na makakatulong maipreserve yung itsura natin diba. lalo na sa panahon ngayon na puro pollution. Im wesley chu, bibigyan ko kayo ng tips on how to improve your skin para mas dagdag pogi points sa mga girls. ako kasi i used branded products takot kasi ako magtry sa mga local products i used shu uemura foaming cleansing water for my face & then nivea mild milk spf50 both in the face & body bago ako umalis ng bahay para hindi magdry tsaka malose yung moisture ng skin xempre para hindi na rin umitim. hindi ako gumagamit ng whitening products kasi maputi na talaga ako half chinese kasi, ayoko kasi ng sobrang puti. And i take 1 capsule of metathione once a day as antioxidant para maflushed lahat ng toxins sa loob ng katawan ko. Kung gusto niyo magpaputi i recommend taking 2 capsules of met along with vitamin c twice a day basta continuous then apply sunblock pag lumalabas sa mainit avoid din masyadong magbabad sa araw magiging useless lang kasi ang paggamit niyo ng met. hope nagustuhan niyo yung mga tips ko mga pre.

patricio.el.suplado June 22, 2008 - 8:43 pm

hey radzdude!

maraming slamat!

i’ll followr your advice.

another thing:

it says in the box na it’s better to use it with the nivea for men whitening facial foam. is it a must? and..

is it okay na mababad ako s aircon for approx. 5 hours aday? aircondxoned kasi room nmn eh, so i hope it won’t affect my usage of the product.. tnx anyways!

TOP Skin BODY Nourishers:

1) Skin White PowerWhitening SPF 20
2) Belo Essentials BLUE (at night) & PINK (during the day)
3) Nivea for Men Whitening Lotion
4) Watson’s Milky Whitening Lotion Green Tea variant
5) Lander Advance Skin Firming Lotion (the best lotion for gym goes like me, it firms ups skin for muscles)

radzdude July 21, 2008 - 11:05 pm

It isn’t a must to use facial foam but there is an advantage if you use a facial foam.It doesn’t clog your pores and doesn’t cause dryness unlike soap.

If you are in an airconditioned room,your skin has a tendency to be dry and lose elasticity.You might as well use lotion.

cataclysmic July 22, 2008 - 2:15 am


a whitening foam from the nivea for men range isn’t necessary unless you can affort both face wash/foam and face cream. if u must choose, go for the face cream as it will be on your skin longer than the face wash.


a lot of girls and women are now noticing how my skin looks better than theirs… when they ask what am I using I just say, “I exercise and sun screen…” Hehehe I am shy to say that my cabinet if full of facial care products hehehe but exercise did really improve my overall blood circulation and my entire skin now glows! no pimples pa! so hit the gym also guys! i work out 4x a week. so it pays off… i have less blemishes now and super clear na skin ko! little dis they know na grabe ang ceremony ko before matulog… skinwhite powerwhitening solution + 5-7 layers of different face creams every night… so tell me papanu hindi gaganda skin ko… jahe lng i have to say a “white lie” about it kasi nga naman halos lahat na lng nga babae nananotice na: close frnd ko, officemates ng nanay ko, tita ko, relative ko, ex classmate ko, hay naku the price i have to pay for superbskin… ok lng ba mag “white lie” hehehe kasi naman my nextdoor neighbor na amiga ng nanay ko also noticed and she tried to raid my closet! scarry noh? anu mga guys? any reactions? am I going overboard na?

cataclysmic July 22, 2008 - 2:18 am

for gym goers like me pala… try nyo lander before at after workout and see the reults! P99 lng for the big bottle… mura na effective pa… use on clean skin lng ha… no sweats at nasty stuffs on it unless you want microbes on you skin

cataclysmic July 23, 2008 - 10:48 pm


Met to flush out toxin? you are mis informed. It is an anti-oxidant which prevents oxidation of certain vitamins prior to being metabolized by the body, pag na oxidize na kasi walang kwenta na yan at hindi na magagamit ng body tas they are converted to free radicals which eat up the oxygen in your system na dapat ay sa cells mo napupunta. Met/glutathione does not in any way flush out toxin! take note of that. They just optimize body functioning.

Patricio July 31, 2008 - 1:38 pm


napansin ko lng po.

i’ve been using nivea for men 5 in 1 whitening moisturizer as recommended by some here for 5 weeks now.

bakit po wala p rin atang changes?

and minsan nga feeling ko mas umiitim po ang mukha ko, hmpf.

anyways, any1 do have an explanaxon?

Patricio July 31, 2008 - 10:33 pm

and hey chris!

i have an impt thing to tell you.

can i feature this blog into my blog?

im planning to upgrade me blog kasi and i was thinking to have a feature blog page, and you’ll be the first one.

sira kasi ata contact page ng blog nto so dito ko nalang nilagay.. tnx!

cataclysmic August 1, 2008 - 1:26 pm

@ Patricio:

Skin darkening really happens when you are particularly non-compatible with the product. Though it may be dermatologically tested safe and effective, it doesn’t mean that it is for everybody. That claim is true but remember each person’s skin may react uniquely to certain substances differently, that’s when there concept of allergy comes in.

If you feel that your skin is irritated, this might be allergic dermatitis and you should stop using the product and consult a derma. Bring the tube of the moisturizer with you and have your derma check on it.

If you think that you skin is getting darker (please be very objective about this), perhaps you have experience allergic dermatitis before and, depending on the serverity, you might have recovered from it unknwoning ly. but the sad news is that and harsh irritation to the skin especially if repeated over and over again can cause skin darkening as a response of the body to that substance. Add to that the damaging effects of UV, even though you have UV protection in that moisturizer, it was not effective because of skin breakage and allergenicity. Any scar/abrasion whether big or small can be darkened easily by UV, especially UVB which is the common cause of sun burns. But this explanation is just to give you an overview. Still nothing is better than seeing a certified dermatologist.

Disclaimer: I, myself, have been using Nivea For Men Whitening moisturizer and I had good results with it. This is not to discourage PPG readers not to buy the product but just be alert when your skin says that it is not suited to the product. This aside, NIVEA For Men Whitening MOisturizer is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Please take not of that. This is the ONLY whitening moisturizer available in the Philippine market that’s specifically for MEN.

Patricio August 1, 2008 - 5:16 pm


First, I want to say thanks for spending time writing a quite lengthy yet informative answer to my query.

As for your response, I dont REALLY say na I’m getting darker, even people around me doesn’t say anything like that.

Siguro lang until now, my skin isn’t improving in terms of its skin color, pero one thing or change in my skin na most probably the reason I should thank Nivea for is that: Many people noticed the better texture and aura of my face. It seems very smooth daw tingnan from far, and even better when they get closer.

As for my comment naman, pansin ko rin my skin on the face is actually better than before. That, perhaps is the effect of Nivea to me? Well, I’m not really sure.

Pero, I’m still using Nivea up to now kasi hindi pa naman ubos ang bottle ko, and I’ve been using it for about 5 weeks na ata, I’m still hoping na I could see improvements as to my skin color, hehe.

Anyways, thanks ha! I am now planning to pay a visit to the derma my mother recommended me to go to, pero she was quite hesitant to send me there regularly since hirap ng panahon eh, hehe. And ang mahal pa ng tuition fee sa school namin.

Again, thanks!

cataclysmic August 10, 2008 - 9:01 pm

Heads up guys!

Here’s a run down of the best soaps.

1) Hype Duo soap (be it the original small soap, or the newer whitening plus anti-aging or the high end HYPE Gluta- C)

REASONS: The soap is effective due to its FRENCH technology called Glyscosphere technology or GlycosTech for short. It delivers papain and vitamin C at molecular level for better penetration and that also equates to better whitening and efficacy because the active ingredients with no be rinsed along with the soap after if has been delivered at molecular level.

Bonus: Ther’es also 2 kinds of lotions that goes with these soap for better whitening.

2) Green Cross PINK soap (the one with almond milk and microbeads)

REASONS: At P10, do I need to emphasize? Germ Protection + smoothening + moisturizing. It has a nice scent pa. Feel your skin after using it so that you’ll prove it to yourself.

3) SkinWhite Powerwhitening soap

REASONS: This soap works wonders, especially if used with the lotion. It whitens your skin in 7 days, REALLY! Visible lightening at 2 weeks and superbly whiter skin at 4 weeks! I even took it to Bora to prevent too much darkening whitle enjoying the beach.

Bonus: It comes with SPF 20! It’s none greasy! And it has the Vita nourish formula SkinWhite is known for.

cataclysmic August 10, 2008 - 9:07 pm

Heads up guys!

PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE: http://www.skinwhiteningstudy.com/

THAT’S THE SCIENCE BEHIND HYPE DUO… for better skin whitening, dapat we know kng what skin do we have and what type of products we should look for and use. Very informative yan, especially if your investing in your skin like me.

Pao August 14, 2008 - 1:45 am

Totoo nga po ung mga reviews sa skinwhite power whitening line… Sinubukan ko lang ung maliit na bottle nun, mahal, 71.25php.. Pero nung naubos ko na, aba.. Na.notice ko na naglighten talaga ung skin ko… I’m planning on buying the bigger bottle.. Kasama na rin ung face solution at face cream, pati na rin ung soap.. Skintel Whitening Soap kasi gamit ko ngaun. Mahal din, 75php.. SkinWhite nlang ako.. Makakamura pa ako tsaka effective rin naman…

Nga pala.. Pag maxipeel user ka, ito ang pinakamaganda na regimen.. Pag naliligo GENTLY rub ur face with your fingertips… DAhan2x lang.. AFter bathing, apply pond’s spotless white detox lotion, followed by the cream.. The lotion hydrates the skin so no flaking will be visible.. Lalo na pag nalagyan mo na ng cream.. Ang linis the after-effects.. Tsaka may sunscreen na ung pond’s kaya safe ka na against UV rays. Hehe.. Been doing this regimen for months now.. Lapit na ako mag.stop ng maxipeel kasi masama pag sumobra…

cataclysmic August 17, 2008 - 3:17 pm

OO Pao, effective talaga ang skin white. lasting pa ang effects. dapat combo.

hi guys…im a newbie in this site…and i consider this very informative site for us guys…i do recommend to spread this site to every guys in town about stuffs that we don’t care to know about it but we must know it…alright…

so. going back to the topic whitening thing…i really need some advise to this because i tried to use a lot of whitening regimen because im a “morino” i want to lighten up my skin to look better, i treid to use whitening soaps ( namely: gluta soap, kojic soap, skinwhite soap, top gel, a nd many more.) about this kojic soap its so effective to me but now i dont have the supply because i dont know to buy it my officemate before is the one who do the purchasing for me an its expensive its Php 250.oo per bar.

im also looking for new friends here………
if you will contact me just inform and also indicate if were to got my number 09238613794…


Pao September 23, 2008 - 10:42 am

Hey jaganium2008, ang masasabi ko lang sa Nivea is ok cya, mild sa skin PERO matagal ung effect niya. I dunno bout the other guys pero un talaga ung na.observe ko. May facial scrub ang block&white noon and it really made me look white, parang the grudge.. Nasobrahan.. Na.shock nga ung mga tao at bigla akong pumuti. Kaya lang wala na sa mga supermarkets un ngaun.. Ewan ko ba, di cguro alam ng mga tao na super effective un kaya wala maxado bumibili, kaya tinanggal na ng b&w sa whitening line nila.

Ang tip ko lang is gumamit ka ng soap na may glycolic acid/AHA… A very good example is skintel whitening soap. It costs 75php. Effective xa sakin at sa kaklase kong lalaki noon.. Pwd rin skinwhite powerwhitening soap, eto mas mura 58.25php.. Regular lang dapat ang paggamit ha.. Na.obserbahan ko lang, mas madali at mas grabe ung intensity ng lightening effect ng skintel whitening soap kesa sa skinwhite powerwhitening soap. Pero kung nagtitipid ka, better stick to skinwhite.

To top it al off, everytime naghihilamos ako, final touch ko ung Gatsby Whitening Wash Foam.. Ginagamit ko rin xa sa arms ko para pantay.. ANd yup, effective rin xa.. Especially sa gabi, paggising mo kinabukasan di maxado oily ung mukha mo, malamig pa sa face pag ung product..

Tsaka ung skinwhite powerwhitening face solution nga pala ung toner ko.. Ok xa, pangalawang bottle ko na..

jaganium2008 September 24, 2008 - 3:11 am

hi pao…

thanks for the advise….

i will try it….


pag register naman kau sa forum para marami na tayo….

cataclysmic September 26, 2008 - 4:48 pm

Ey guys…
yes effective talaga ang skinwhite power whitening toner… this is my third bottle… parang local version sya ng obagi… power whitening user ako from soap to toner to lotion. sa face, nagdarken skin ko kasi naman hardinero din ako dito sa amin hehehe ao ayon naarawan ako ng masyado, i use garnier light face scrub at foam then last belo patterned din ang belo after the obagi skin line. they key is letting the lather stay sa face mo for at least 2 mins for the wash and 5-10 mins for the scrub… then follow it up with skin white toner then garnier light face lotion + myra e + ponds = skin is reborn the next day… BEST if with at least 8 hours rest.

bea September 27, 2008 - 10:47 pm

nakakatuwa naman to. hehe i didn’t know that guys are soo vain din pala. 🙂

Patricio September 27, 2008 - 10:50 pm


I’ve been using the Nivea for Men 5-in-1 Whitening Moisturizer.

Um, nakaka 2 months na po ako and yet no improvements.

I actually used it since it is recommended by you guys.

Though I understand that the effectiveness varies from person to person, but do you have any suggestions for alternative ways?


Stupid question pero curious lang po:

Does the effectivity being affected by diabetes? haha. la lang po. from my wild imagination. am diabetic ata eh, though di p nmn confirmed tlga.

Going back, any recommendations?


cataclysmic September 28, 2008 - 6:12 pm

@ bea:

Believe it bea. Kasi naman kayong mga girls gusto nyo ganito gusto nyo ganyan parate samin mga lalake so here we are nagpapagwapo.

@ patricio:
Try the garnier light range.
UV block lotion like myra-e with SPF 15 or Nivea whitening with SPF 30

Patricio September 29, 2008 - 12:42 pm


The Garnier’s too expensive.

I can only *sigh*

Anyways, here’s going back to my old NFM.

Pag tiya-tiyagaan ko na lang muna to.


Any recommendations na affordable?

catalysmic September 29, 2008 - 9:41 pm

@ patricio:

dude, sulit naman eh…
effective sakin…
i bought the ff garnier light range:
1. face scrub
2. facial foam
3. moisturizing lotion with SPF 15

please please use UV block lotion ha…

cataclysmic September 30, 2008 - 11:52 am

@ patriocio:

just continue using the whitening foam by nivea for men, it will give you the prep that you need for optimal whitening.
Try skin white’s power whitening toner costs around 40 pesos. follow it up with the face cream. i suggest you use this tandem in the evening though it says it can be used day and night but don’t be harsh on your skin during the day time instead opt for a good UV block lotion line nivea sun whitening milk SPF 30 costs aroung 199 pesos. I usually follow it up with pond’s pinkish white cream to do away with the sticky feeling and to give the illusion of a moisturized skin with out the geasy feeling. Gusto ko bumili ng neutrogene ultra sheer sun screen with heliopex (patented UV blocking agent developed by neutrogen) pro it costs a whopping 500 bucks so I will just stay with nivea for now.

jaganium2008 October 1, 2008 - 4:21 am

thanx for sharing ur nightly routine..
how about sharing ur morning rituals, like, the preparations that you do and the products you use to gussy up before you leave home?

cataclysmic October 12, 2008 - 11:41 pm

morning routine:

1) garnier light face foam then belo essentials to further enhance whitening kasi mas concentrated sya among all facial wash at it closes my pores.

2) belo essentials toner + fasting absorbing powerful moisturizer like myra with SPF15.

3) garnier light face lotion with SPF 15. If i think I’m going to be under the sun frequently most of the day like jumping from one building to another or walking from point A to B, especially at noon til 3, I use nivea sun whitening milk with SPF 30.

4) To conceal everything I top it of with ponds pinkish white cream and a few johnson’s cooling powder to smoothen things up at para d halata. You’ll look like bagong ligo for a least 2-3 hours. Tapos the best part hindi pa halata basta USE in MODERATION.

NIGHT regimen:

same pa rin. pro i just use the garnier light face scrub from time to time every 2-3 days ata.

skin white power whitening toner

myra moisturizer

garnier light


try nyo mga dude. I had a lot of compliments na pro nahihiya ako pag na notice nila na ang ganda ng skin ko… hehehe sencia mahiyain talaga

hahah good question minsan nauubusan ako ng oras. I have my emrgency kit sa gym bag ko hehehe… just face wash plus dove SPF 15 yon lng… no fuzz ang emergency kit ko since i can’t carry whitening products noh so I just opt for sun protection. medyo addict ako sa sunscreem and UV block lotions.

Pao October 14, 2008 - 12:15 pm

how to avoid pimples? tips anyone?

noon kasi kahit gano pa ako ka.late matulog cos of skulwork and thesis 1 di aq tinutubuan ng more than 2 pimples… pero ngaun bigla akong tinubuan ng 4-5 spots.. di kaya sa products na gninamit ko? tinapalan ko kasi ng ponds detox na gold ung skinwhite powerwhitening face cream eh.. Baka nagka.allergic reaction… huhuhu…

Ritz October 14, 2008 - 8:30 pm

The best pa rin kung sa derma ka pupunta…try it once tapos pag nalaman mo na ang regimen mo, dun ka na maghanap ng alternative. For example ang facial sa derma ay 600 pero sa mga spa 250 lang. Very effective ang chemical peel kasi magiging clean and clear ang mukha. Then ang regimen ko (sa pimples kasi malamang na prob din yan) is erythromycin solution 2% and benzoyl peroxide (every night lang and alternate yung paggamit nung dalawa erythro ngayon bukas benzoyl naman). Important ang sun block SPF30 maraming products na ang mura. Yung nivea whitening moisturizer eh hindi dapat sa mga oily skin kasi maglalangis lalo face nyo. Pero it’s a good product dun sa mga pinalad na hindi oily ang face. Also sa derma, meron silang cream na prescribed…siguro medyo mahal pero one time big time naman ang effects. Hindi yung naghuhulaan. Yung Olay total effects maganda din ang feedback. Ayun…if you really like a good skin, medyo gagastos ka talaga (Clarinse for men is an example). Worth it naman kasi maayos ka naman tignan…lalo na yung mga mahilig mambabae dyan.

cataclysmic October 15, 2008 - 11:32 pm

After the treatment may specified routine ka na and ingredients to avoid ask your derma. Good for pimples ang master na papaya at ponds anti-bacterial scrub.

Pao October 17, 2008 - 3:49 am

May nakatry na ba sa inyo ng Gatsby Whitening Wash Foam? Effective talaga xa.. Ginagamit ko rin xa sa arms ko para pantay ung kulay…

Matagal ko nang hinahanap ung skin whitener facial scrub ng block and white… Nakikita pa ba ninyo to sa shelves sa market ngaun? Kasi sobrang effective nun.. Talagang nashock ung mga kaklase ko pagbalik ko sa skul noon.. Para ngang the grudge ung kulay ko, nasobrahan.. Haha.. Melawhite ung whitening ingredient nun.. Ewan ko kung may facial wash and scrub pa ba ung Block and White ngaun.. Pag may nakita kau let me know please.. Miss na miss ko na kac ung “the grudge” ko na kulay.. Ang hirap ibalik nun. Hahayz…

Tsaka, paalala lng.. Wag ipagsabay ang skinwhite powerwhitening face cream at ponds detox creams, kac unstable ung chemical reaction nito, at magkakapimples kau.. Buti nlang nakarecover na ung mukha ko.. Japanese mode na ulit ako.. Pero kulang pa para maging the grudge ulit. Hahaha.. INgats kau lagi

catac;ysmic October 20, 2008 - 12:40 am

@ Pao:

Hindi po totoo yan, stable ang chemicals for both ponds pinkish whitening cream at skinwhite powerwhitening cream. Otherwise, wala sya sa market.What you mean is when you combine it. Who are you to say na dahil nagkapimples ka e hindi na compatible yon. May be you didn’t observe proper hygiene when you use the products kasi may germs fingers mo tapos blame it on the products. O d kaya ineefective ang cleansing mo kaya there was germs and dirt na na trap sa llob ng pores mo. I tried it for 2 months, ok naman mas super effective pa sya. Synergistic ang effect nya. I am not saying na you won’t have a reaction pro its less likely lng kasi dermatologically tested ang mga yan kahit e combine mo pa yan hindi naman muriatic acid yan mo and once the skin is properly preped, mas deep ang penetration ng active ingredients.

Please prep your skin properly. mild daily scrub plus powerwhitening solution plus powerwhitenning cream + wait for at least 15 mins then follow it up with bonds or any other whitening “leave-on” product like garnier or better yet opt for a light-weight UV block SPF 15-30.

Patricio October 21, 2008 - 9:42 pm

lalim na ng usapan nito, haha.

stick to basics na nga lang ako.

*wash face early in the morning and before going to sleep, haha*

Pao October 25, 2008 - 1:42 am


uhmm.. i gave it another shot.. i followed ur advice on putting the skinwhite powerwhitening face cream, then following it up with pond’s detox cream after 15 minutes.. i did that for 2 nights and no breakouts occured.. hehe.. i stand corrected… btw, im using the spotless white detox cream.. the skinwhite toner really improved the texture of my skin… im gonna keep on using it… thanx cataclysmic..

If it isn’t too much to ask.. can I ask for ur e-mail add?.. so that if i have question with regards to stuff like this I’d ask you directly..
Thanx again..

Gusto ko lng ishare sa inyo ang satisfaction ko sa skinwhite powerwhitening toner..

Kahapon to nangyari..

Bumisita ako sa tito at tita ko para kausapin sila about my grades’ status.. Then, nung nakita ako ng cousin ko na sabi niya sakin “oh, kuminis ung mukha mo ha”.. That statement of hers really made my day… Tsaka napansin ko rin na gumanda ang texture ng mukha ko, the look and the touch.. Ang sarap hawakan ng face ko dahil sa texture.. Thanx to skinwhite…

Try nyo gamitin ung toner ng skinwhite.. Makaubos lng kayo ng 1 bottle eh makikita nyo na ang difference.. 😀

cataclysmic October 27, 2008 - 10:06 pm

@ Pao.

Sure Pao. Glad to be of help. ako din bumili ako ulit ng toner and cream. tandem na para bilis at maximum benefits. just post your e-mail and I’ll be more than happy to drop you a message.

Sabi sayo eh. effective. and the best part? wala pa sya peeling at nourished ang skin mo. Glad to here the goodnews pao. Ako din I had the same reaction. Kala nila nagpapaderma ako kasi makinis daw. Just use any UV block cream or lotion sa face that you like of at least SPF 15 and you’re good to go.

Pao October 29, 2008 - 9:24 am


lapit na maubos skinwhite toner ko.. kelangan ko na naman bumili.. i didnt realize na may mini bottle pala nun, ung 40+ ung presyo.. hehe.. ang nabibili ko lagi ung 70+php..

Nga pala.. e-mail adds ko:


Pao October 29, 2008 - 9:32 am


sinubukan ko gumamit ng Etta’s whitening powder, ung nilalagyan ng hydrogen peroxide(agua oxeginada)… Pinanipis nung ung buhok ko sa forearms, mejo nag.lighten nga eh, tsaka sa tingin ko namatay ung buhok o sa forearms.. haha.. Ilang years na pero ganun pa rin ung itsura…

Subukan mo tong isa.. Pwd rin milk powder haluan mo ng agua oxeginada.. Ung consistency dapat parang ice cream ha.. Then apply mo dun sa hairy part. Pag makapal ung strands ilang applications pa cguro before mo manotice ung effect ng agua sa hairstrands.. Tsaka ung purpose mo sa paggamit nun eh para sa hair thinning, bonus nlang ung slight lightening effect sa skin..

Nga pala, instead of taking gluta orally, ok na kung magvitamin E ka daily, 400IU/400mg. Vitamin E is said to inhibit melanin formation, and it protects u from the harmful rays of the sun inside-out. 😀

Pao October 29, 2008 - 9:42 am

OH.. Another tip..

I use skinwhite powerwhitening soap.. Pero pag tight ako sa budget ang binibili ko eh ung bioderm whitening germicidal soap.. “melfade” ung main ingredient for lightening. ung maliit costs almost 20php.. ung malaki almost 30php lng.. Ok ung effect nya.. At isa lng ang naririnig ko sa mga nirekomendahan ko with the soap noon hanggan ngayon.. Di daw sila mabilis umitim, and witness ako jan.. Naglakad ako under the sun noon without applying any lotion with UVA/UVB filters.. So sabi ko sa self ko, “hay iitim na naman ako nito”. To my surprise paguwi ko, parang wala namang nagbago.. hehe..

Napancn din ng mom ko pati na ng 2 close friends ko na di cla madaling umitim dahil sa soap na un.. Wala pa akong allowance kaya im’ma use this brand muna.. ok rin naman eh, trusted brand rin naman ang bioderm when it comes to family soaps..

Pero mga guys, hinay2x lng sa mga ka.ekekan sa balat ha, kawawa ang liver natin.. Watever we apply sa skin ang liver ang nagfifilter sa mga chemicals from the products that we use.. Whoah, ang haba na ng post na to ah.. hahaha.. cge hanggang dito nlang..


vinci October 29, 2008 - 11:02 pm

about sa unwanted hair may dku maciado problem ung sa katawan ung prob ko sa muka ang dami eh my nkita akung pra cyang cream na niluluto pinapainit pala sa watson wax yta un pwede sa face dku alam kung pano gamitin.

Pao October 30, 2008 - 2:25 pm


depilation wax ung ibig mong sabihin.. ipapahid mo sa area na may buhok tapos tapalan mo ng hair-stripping sheet… un ang alam ko.. may ganun rin ata sa watsons…

tsaka ung presyo ng belo toner at ung sa skinwhite almost the same lng.. pero ang effect di ko alam kung pareho, o baka mas magaling ung isa sa isa… si cataclysmic ata may alam kung alin ang may mas magandang effect kac he uses both eh.. hehe

vinci October 30, 2008 - 6:46 pm

by the way ok ba ung wax? sana di masakit sa muka ko kc lalagay eh. nkakapatay daw ng roots sabi dun. pag lagi mo gngamit

vinci October 30, 2008 - 6:47 pm

eto problem ku blackhead ! panu kaya

Pao October 31, 2008 - 7:55 am


Nasa box ung toner ng skinwhite.. Ang nakalagay “SkinWhite Powerwhitening Face Solution”.. Kulay nya parang Light Ocean Blue-Green.. Ok ang effect.. nakakakinis rin ng itsura at texture ng balat. Hmm, masubukan nga yang belo toner, parang na.curious ako eh. hehe..

Keep the updates coming… 😀

Kenneth November 1, 2008 - 11:09 pm

hey! anu bang mgandang brand ng soap, as in yung nakakputi talaga?
then…effective ba talaga ang nivea?

Pao November 2, 2008 - 1:23 am


Soaps that are effective:
-SkinWhite Powerwhitening Soap
-Belo Essentials
-Kojisan Kojic Acid Soap
-Bioderm Whitening Soap

Ok ang nivea, pero mabagal ang effect…

cataclysmic November 17, 2008 - 1:05 am

Grabe ang pagrerecommend ng neighbor ko to try KSA MAGIC soap. whole family nila gumagamit and I have to admit pumuti nga sila ng konti just enough para ma notice mo. Any reviews on this soap kng cno na naka try? I’ve read the ingredients at grabe ang line-up. Gluta, kojic, clair blanche, at skin vitamins pa (4-5 I think). And I peeked at the soap kasi kabibili lng namin kanina. It has no colorants, mercury or hydroquinone. simple looking soap sya, as what you would normally expect from a soap na madami ang active ingredients… Less ang mga additive na walang masyadong role sa effects nya. Which I think is good kasi alam mo mas dami ang actives nyan.


toplatsi November 20, 2008 - 2:01 pm

gusto ko rin sanang sumubok ng nivea… can’t afford lang e hehe

glutathione pills din, i am convinced na effective din sya although di ko pa rin sya nata-try… napanimbang ko ito dahil sa marami na akong nabasang pro’s and anti’s regarding gluta, way back early 2000s [di pa sila sikat dito sa Pinas]

anyway, may gluta soap naman daw pala ngayon.

pero mas mabilis pa rin daw ang effect ng papaya soap

toplatsi November 20, 2008 - 2:03 pm

pero sa ngayon, nagdadalawang-isip na akong magpaputi.

sabi kasi sa akin ng friend ko, ok na raw ang complexion ko… parang di raw bagay sa akin ang maputi… baka mapagkamalan daw akong bading hehe

Pao November 21, 2008 - 12:28 am

nasubukan ko na ang KSA Magic Soap… and YES effective siya. Lalong naglighten yung likod ko.. Sabi ngi na ni mum nung topless ako “Ang puti ng likod mo, maiinggit yung mga babae nyan”.. wahehe..

nung nabili ko cya sa watsons buy 1 take 1.. 120php ata yung presyo noon, ewan ko na kung magkano ngaun.

seiji November 21, 2008 - 9:54 am

okay yung Gatsby facial wash!! effective..

DUKE November 22, 2008 - 10:31 am

hi im duke, pure filipino. i just want to know if a 15 yr old guy can use nivea whitening moisturizer because i would like to have nice shade of skin tone in my face. tnx.

DUKE November 22, 2008 - 10:57 am

i would just like to add that it is “nivea FOR MEN whitening moisturizer”. is it too strong for my face ? i would just like to have an edge among the other guys in our classroom. hehe 🙂

cataclysmic November 22, 2008 - 11:09 pm

hi duke,

since you’re only 15 years old. your skin is still maturing and reconstructing itself to its optimum potential. you might wanna hold the idea of starting a complicated skin care. my recommendation to you are.

1. UV block (wrongly referred to as SUN BLOCK) with SPF rating of at least 15 and go up to 30 during hot days and summer.

2. try celeteque’s new exoliating face scrub with vit. C & E beads. it gentle and will produce good results after a few weeks of using.

3. a tea tree oil based face scrub will do wonder on stubborn blemishes and clear all your nasty bumbs and lumps on your skin. 2 weeks use and you’ll creave for it. try the watson’s generic brand of tea tree oil face scrub and you’ll get your money’s worth.

4. For gentle whitening try the CLEAR FAIRNESS range of clean and clear because they have a more gently formulation. Belo essentials is also good but use this when u get to college or in the 4th year of HS at least.

5. nivea for men is good also as a starting product but dbt you dare experiment much because you will do lots of damage to your skin unless you know what you’re doing.

rule of thumb:
if it stings or stinks throw it in the sink,
UV block all the way 365 days a year is the best tip for whitening.

DUKE November 23, 2008 - 9:28 pm

thnk u very much cataclysmic for those great pieces of advise. ur ryt, my skin may stil be in its maturing and reconstructing stage. i will now be more careful in choosing products that will be used for my face. tnx again !

Sushmita November 30, 2008 - 12:10 pm

Hi everyone,

My name is Sushmita and I have been following this blog and comments closely.

Let me introduce myself. I am a research student in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, USA. I am doing a study on Whitening products for men in Asia and I found this blog.

Kudos to the blogger and all of you who have been asking your questions here and helping each other out.

A bit about my research. The past few years have seen tremendous growth in the male skincare market. Since I am originally an Indian, studying and living in America has got me to notice the way the whitening and fairness market for men has grown in Asia (In the US whitening skin care is non-existent, a tan is more fashionable among men here!).

This blog has been very informative so far, but I need more detailed views and opinions of all you guys who have used or are using skin whitening products. I would really appreciate if you responded and are interested in helping me out…I have many questions in my head about male whitening products and since I’m a woman this topic really interests me.

Looking forward to your replies.



cataclysmic December 2, 2008 - 9:24 pm

@ Sushmita:

Hi there! I am assuming that you are an Indian lady. Am I right? I will be more than happy to answer any of your queries.

Sushmita December 4, 2008 - 5:50 pm

Hi Cataclysmic…thanks for responding. Can I have your email address as our communication will be faster through that? My id is sushmita.das21@gmail.com
Looking forward for a quick response.

Pao December 6, 2008 - 5:35 pm

Hey.. You guys ever tried a bleaching soap that contains only 2 ingredients namely: Calcium Carbonate USP, Magnesium oxide

It tremendously lightened the discolorations in between my thighs and also the garter marks caused by wearing briefs.. And the entire bar of soap hasn’t even been used up..

I shared the information to my classmates and they too liked the effect.. Even the older bro of my classmate used the soap and he liked it, he said his face really lightened. One of my classmates got compliments from her group of friends, they told her that her face cleared and lightened up. Even my sister is currently using it.. Her face cleared up to, and the discoloration on her elbows faded including the insect bites on her legs.

The name of the product is Derma… It comes in 4 colors:
Green -> for Dark-skinned people
White -> for Brown-skinned people
Pink -> for Light-skinned people
Yellow -> contains papaya extract for double-whitening action

Although I find the pink one more fast and effective… You’ll be shocked with it’s price.. With its efficacy you’ll be surprised that it’s cheap and affordable. Plus the product is produced by a trusted company name for years “Swallow-Derma Philippines, Incorporated”.

All of their products are freaking effective! Even the lotions and face creams… Damn, I should’ve bought and consistently used their products years ago! Cos you need to let the lather stay on your skin for 10 minutes for optimum results. I got tired of it, so, I stopped using it. But now I gave it another try and I’m more diligent in using it.

I still use Skinwhite Powerwhitening Face Solution as my evening toner though. And Myra-E as my face moisturizer. But everything else is “Derma”.

cataclysmic December 6, 2008 - 6:35 pm

@ pao wer did you bye it? meron ba nyan sa SM? or sa mercury? anu itsura nya… pls provide a pic

Hello Pao and Cataclysmic..pde po bang bgyan nyo ako ng daily routine kung ano ggmitin ko..gusto ko po kcng pumuti..thx po!!!

Pao December 16, 2008 - 10:15 pm

My morning routine:
1. I wash my face with a germicidal soap (Bioderm)
2. I wash my face and body with ableaching soap (Derma) ->posted above
3. I leave it (derma) on my skin for 5mins (rush), 10 mins (kung may extra time)
4. Myra-E face moisturizer, either the original or whitening variant.. Both are fantastic
5. iWhite Korea Skin Whitening Vita Face Cream… Pati arms ko nilalagyan ko.. bale, un na ang protection ko sa UV rays.. SPF15 cya.

My evening routine:
Same as 1-4.. But I don’t do number 5 at night. Instead my no.5 at night would be Skinwhite Whitening Face Solution. (sobrang okay to na product. Paggising nyo gaganda ang texture ng balat nyo sa mukha)

Yun lang.. Si cataclysmic grabe ang ritual… hay nako.. ibang klase talaga. hehehe

Tsaka pansin ko lang.. Ilang gabi na akong di nakakapaghilamos dahil sa pagod at katamaran.. Pero di na ako tinutubuan ng pimples.. heheh.. I’m so happy.. Galing talaga ng epekto ng “Derma” products.

adrian December 17, 2008 - 8:51 pm

Has anybody tried GIGAWHITE? from the looks and packaging it looks like it from abroad. I’ve tried doing research on it via the net and it has many international reviews. Any say nyo? Pao? Should we give it a try? Pro it’s on the pricey end, !190 for the face cover sunscreen with SPF 37 and 130 for the soap. the spot corrector cost a starggering 400+.

Pao anu say mo my co-skincare aficionado.

35years December 23, 2008 - 9:27 pm


bago ko lng nakita tong blog na ito at nag papasalamat ako na meron plang nag bibigay ng mga payo tungkol sa skin care ng mga lalaki… matagal ko tong pinapangarap na meron sananng magbibigay payo tungkol sa pag aalaga o pag papaganda ng kutis ng mga lalaki upang mapanatili ang kagandahan nito ngunit akoy bigo noon kc di ko nakita ang blog na to…at ngayon 35 years old.

sana may sasagot sa mga katanungan ko.

Pao December 25, 2008 - 9:54 am

Nakita ko na yang gigawhite pero sobrang mahal talaga… Kaw na lang muna cguro cataclysmic ang magtry nyan. Kasi ibang brand, ibang ingredients… Mag-aadjust na naman ang skin.. Grabe talaga c cata, sinusubukan lahat, ibang.. hehehe

Hi 35yrs!


Good thing you stumbled upon here. Stick around. Dami kang matutunan dito.

Visit ka rin sa forums para sa mas mabilisang response.

Pao December 26, 2008 - 12:59 am


if you’re worried about getting wrinkles, all you have to do is to moisturizer.. the older you get the heavier you should moisturize.. moisturization is the key to delay the common sign of aging which is wrinkles.

subukan mo yung mga moisturizers na available sa market.. kung gusto mo rin maglighten yung mukha while moisturizing at the same time may variants din na nakakalighten ng skin.. case-to-case basis din, pag epektibo para sa iba di ibig sabihin epektibo na rin sayo. Remember magkaiba ng skin types ang bawat tao.. Trial and error lang until you find the right product which suits your skin. Cheers.. 😀

George December 26, 2008 - 4:22 pm

Naku naku….sa dami ng mga whitening products ngayon na lumalabas, mukhang wala nang mapagkakatiwalaan. Pero salamat nalang at na-try ko and mag products ng Herbalife. I used to have many pimples that is, at marami na akong nasubukang products pero wala akong napala. Thank God at natagpuan ko itong mga products ng HERBALIFE.

cataclysmic December 26, 2008 - 4:45 pm

Hay naku! namumulubi na nga talaga ang herbalife na yan. kahit dito nag aadvertise pa. ipapatanggal ko yan. ka cheapan na talaga itong herbalife na to. kami ni pao we mention brands but not to the point na minamarket namin. itong si george na to nagaadvertise pa ng para mainganyo ang mga tao sa walang kwentang herbalife. pipitchugin na man.

Chris, paki tanggal ng comment na nasa taas. maladvertisement yan.

35years December 26, 2008 - 9:00 pm


maraming salamat sa mga sagot mo pede ko ba malaman ang mga brand sa mga sinasabi mo kc wla tlga akong kaalam alam sa mga ganyan, tulad ng moisturizer at ung sinasabi mong pang lighten ng skin ano mga brand nito.

at papano ko ba malalaman ung di hiyang sa akin hehehehe obviously namn di nag la-light yung skin ko baka meron pa iba mga sign and ano ka haba ang pag oobserve ko sa skin ko kung itoy hiyang o hindi.

at sana din lahat ng mga iyon ay mabibili ko lang sa mercury drug kc un lng ang may malalaking drugstore dito sa lugar namin.

sana ay mapaunlakan mo ulit itong katanungan ko, god bless and more power.

cataclysmic December 26, 2008 - 11:47 pm


My recommendation to prevent or lessen wrinkles:

1. facial scrub with microscrubs. try ST. IVES APRICOT SCRUB or MASTER papaya scrub. use 2-3x a week depending on the need or skin tolerance. DON’T RUB TOO HARD, JUST GENTLE CIRCULAR MOTIONS ON THE FACE AND NECK.

2. Use an exfoliant which is retinol-based. retinol is a vitamin A derivative and helps smoothen lines and wrinkles and also decreases the pimples. CAUTION: USE STRICTLY ACCORDING TO MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS. DON’T OVER APPLY AS YOU WILL GET BURNED. Try EXTRADERM’s age defy range strength #1 and the strength #2 if your skin can tolerate. but not number three as that may severely peel your skin to redness.


it must have SUNCREEN rating of SPF 15 and applied daily. it’s not too late to save your skin.

****top skin moisturizers:
—-MYRA-E VITAWHITE Whitening face lotion with SPF 15
—-EXTRADERM AGE DEFY’S range of Day moisturizers
yan lng sa budget range pro that will improve your skin basta strict ang disiplina.

to ask me directly, e-mail me at cataclysmic21@yahoo.com

adrian December 28, 2008 - 1:46 pm


cataclysmic December 29, 2008 - 12:30 am


that’s just the oil and the play of lights on your skin. the skin is stripped of oil after you wash it so you see the tightened skin minus the oil giving you that fine and whiter apperance. the true measure of fairness is your skin a few hours after washing it when there’s normal oil on your skin.

wear sunscreen always.

35years December 29, 2008 - 5:32 pm

hello cataclysmic & pao…

bakit nagka oil ung face ko nung akoy gumagamit ng MASTER papaya scrub di pa namn gaano katagal di pa nga nag wa one week ang pag gamit ko 2 days palng ang pag gamit ko d2 pero ive notice na nag oily ung face ko ano ito di ba ako hiyang sa srub..

salamat sa pag sagot.

Pao December 30, 2008 - 3:04 pm


Nag-aadjust pa yung skin mo sa product..

Kung naturally oily naman yung mukha niyo I suggest Gatsby Whitening Wash Foam.. Dry-skinned kasi yung kapatid ko, nung sinubukan niya lalong nagdry.. For Oily skin lang talaga yung product.. pero nakakalighten talaga ng skin.

Pero I’ve stopped using it kasi lalo akong magtatagal sa banyo kung gagamitin ko pa yun.. Sa Derma soap pa nga lang sobrang tagal ko na eh.. hehehe

cataclysmic December 31, 2008 - 11:08 am


I agree with pao. Your skin is adjusting. just follow it up with a good dose of moisturizer. Not much, just enough only to prevent to much regreasing of your skin. Without it you will just prompt your skin to produce more oil. And there’s a benefit to this. Since wrinkles ang prob mo, the natural oil helps ward off fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why oily-skined people age less and much more slower if you are a man because of our skin’s thicker layer. But don’t go overboard with moisturizing. Try to gradually gauge it. Start with just an ample amount until you know that it’s too much.

The gatsby whitening foam is also great just as pao said. Use gatsby for daily cleansing and master papaya scrub for exfoliation every other day or every 2-3 days, depending on skin tolerance. Never scub daily but if you must try to do it a night to give you skin a change to renew itself after a GOOD night’s rest. SUNSCREEN agad sa umaga until 3pm sa hapon.

SUNCREEN is the best anti-aging product. If used together with a good exfoliant solution, it will work wonders.

I cannot get enough of sunscreens! Use at least SPF 15.

Best picks:
1. Nivea Sun SPF 50
2. Dove Essential Nutrients SPF 15 Day Lotion
3. Neutrogena Sheer Dry with Helioplex SPF 50
4. POnd’s Age Defense SP15 (anti-aging and suncreen combo)
5. Garnier Lightening cream SPF 15 (Whitening and sunscreen combo)
6. Olay White radiance SPF 19 (old variant)
7. Belo Day Cream with SPF 15

daisuke January 2, 2009 - 12:04 pm

can i ask something about the whitening pill? Does the metathione contains cysteine which forms in kidney stone? is it disadvantage?

francisart January 19, 2009 - 11:28 pm

hi there. i just started using kojic-san soap for my face(at night) and body. i also use nivea 5 in 1 whitening(daytime), im also taking metathione 2 caps. im also using Vaseline healthy sunblock spf30. is this ok na?? any suggestions?

Pao January 26, 2009 - 12:15 am


walang masamang epekto ang cysteine sa body.. infact it’s a good supplement.. i googled it and found nothing bad about it.. but i believe in “too much of something is bad enough”.


that’s more than enough actually.. even I don’t take supplements just to change my color.. however, I take vitamin E 400 IU daily, it did help my complexion.

If u want something effective try YSA bleaching soap (79php) or YSA whitening soap (80php).. They’re both effective especially the bleaching variant.. It FREAKING LIGHTENED my inner thighs and the thing between the thighs (if u know what i mean).. hahaha… Seriously, I’m not kidding.. 1 bar pa lang yun ha.. Tsaka vegetable soap yung base ng soap so ok talaga sa skin. The key is consistency and leaving it on the skin for 5 minutes (body) and 2 minutes (face and neck).

Noon kasi effective nga pero pangit naman ang formulation ng YSA sa bleaching and whitening soaps nila, di bubbly.. Pero nung sinubukan ko ulit after 4 years, they’ve changed the formulation na pala.. Bubbly na cya ngayon.. Paalala lang sa bleaching soap, sa body pwede patagalin ang soap for the full effect, pero sa face 2 minutes lang, or else hahapdi talaga.. Tulad lang naman ng kojic acid soap, but faster and more visible results.. TRUST ME, YOU WON’T REGRET IT..

I’ll share some before and after pics soon to show you the efficacy ang greatness of YSA bleaching soap. Cheers! 😀

Pao January 26, 2009 - 12:18 am

oh, and one more thing.. the bleaching soap can be a bit drying as most whitening soaps are.. it’d be best if you apply a moisturizer on your face cos if you won’t your face will feel like it had just been botoxed.. you can’t even smile widely if you don’t apply a moisturizer.. hehe

francisart January 27, 2009 - 10:53 pm


francisart January 27, 2009 - 10:54 pm

@ Pao: can i have any contact number mo?

i started using placenta soap na together with koji san soap…. ok na ba un? tas im taking met. so far, pumuputi namn dw ako sbi ng mga kaklase ko. 2 and a half weeks plang of met and 1 week of kojie-san.

Pao January 28, 2009 - 12:40 am


iboost mo yung effect ng met with non-acidic vitamin C… what brand of placenta soap are you using?

and a piece of advice, your skin is in its maturing stage sa edad mong yan, so be careful with all the stuff you put on your skin or else you’re gonna do permanent damage to it. you’re still a kid, so, don’t put too much garb on your skin okay? hinay hinay lang..

stick to a brand which works for you, and give the rituals and routine a rest once in a while, para di ma-immune yung skin mo sa product na gamit mo, para effective pa rin kahit long term na yung usage..

Cheers! 😀

Hey ya’ll.. Just wanna share something..

Are you having problems with pimples marks and dark spots? Want them to go away or be less visible in a matter of days?

Then do it the “natural” way… TOMATO

Tomatoes contain 100% vitamin C.. This vitamin is well known for its influence in collagen synthesis.. Vitamin C when applied externally fades discolorations and dark spots, inhibits melanin formation and acne formation and evens out skin tone.

-Cut the tomato in half (Half for the face, the other for the neck)
-Squeeze the juice and enzymes out of the tomato and apply it on your face. Do the same to your neck. (Don’t mind the seeds)
-Let the stuff stay on your skin for 15-20 minutes.
-Rinse thoroughly

Do this during bedtime cos there might be red patches on your skin, but it will be gone when wake up in the morning.

You can actually use the tomato on any part of the body which needs lightening.

I tried it last night.. I don’t wanna exagerrate but when I woke up, the pimple marks really faded and the texture of my face got better.


Jerry February 7, 2009 - 11:13 pm

@Pao: Yung tinutukoy mo bang YSA whitening soap ay yung YSA papaya whitening soap? Wala na kasi akong makitang ibang YSA soap kundi yung YSA papaya whitening soap e. Salamat!

Jerry February 7, 2009 - 11:21 pm

@Pao nasan na yung before and after pics? Hehe!

sejabin February 8, 2009 - 9:20 pm

guys have you tried cosmo skin glutathione? it’s very cheap P1005 lang sa watsons. its 500 mg gluta with alpha lipoic and vit c. just wanna know if it’s effective. mejo mahal kasi yung met. if i can have the same effect with this one why not di ba?

and also about the natasha gluta? yung chewable n glutathione. i did some research and i found one about glutahione being more absorbed if it’s place between the cheek and the gum line or yun n nga chewable.

which brand of gluta or whitening soap is the best?

hope you can answer these guys. im new at this.

Pao February 11, 2009 - 10:04 pm


May 3 variants ang YSA na pampaputi:

1. Papaya Whitening Soap
2. Glycerin Whitening Soap
3. Lemon Bleaching Soap

Ang tinutukoy ko eh yung YSA Lemon Bleaching Soap… Pangatlong bar ko na.. I really love its efficacy. Subukan mo kaya para malaman mo.. Tsaka di lang ako ang witness sa efficacy nito, pati rin yung mga taong narekomendahan ko ng sabong to. hehehe.. 😀

About the before and after pics.. Hintayin nyo lang.. Ipinagpapatuloy ko pa yung paggamit ng sabon para light na light na talaga yung kulay ko at makita nyo talaga ang difference.. Peace.

Jerry February 12, 2009 - 11:37 pm


Ok kaya yung YSA papaya whitening soap? Yun lang kasi nakita ko sa mall. San ka nakabili nung Lemon B.S.? Salamat!

Pao February 16, 2009 - 11:49 pm


Subukan mo sa Watsons.. Dun ako unang bumili ng improved version ng YSA L.B.S… Kung wala or out of stock, try mo sa mercury drug stores.. You’re welcome 😀

the1 February 18, 2009 - 5:13 pm

guys i have tried the ysa, papaya, for nearly a week now, so far i cant see much improvements, maybe it needs a it more time, well, my inner thighs have certainly gone whiter!!! hehehehehe

sejabin February 23, 2009 - 6:56 am

guys try nyo yung swiss l glutathione soap. very effective. pati yung gluta firm and white and yung orange peel gluta soap. all 3 are effective.

adrian February 23, 2009 - 12:52 pm

Hey Pao!!!Long TIme No Talk ah!!!!remember me??!! heheh… pede ba uli akong humingi ng help sayo..itatanong ko lang kung effective ba ang silka products lalo n ung soap kc un ang gamit ko ngaun e..sana matulungan mo agad ako..tnx^_^

Bunsoi February 23, 2009 - 7:56 pm

Ei, tagal ko ring di nakabalik dito ah.

I tried what Pao said before na SkinWhite PowerWhitening Face Solution and I’ll tell you guys kung effective ba talaga this coming days, hehe

OT: Anyways, I’d like to share a product. Hindi po ito whitening actually. Kumbaga facial wash lang na inirecommend din dito dati ng isang reader. Ung sa Master Facial Scrub na may Ice Pore Minimizer. S ofar so good. Malamig sa mukha, and seems like effective naman.

Jerry February 26, 2009 - 11:01 pm

@Pao: Nakakita na rin ako sa wakas ng YSA lemon bleaching soap. Sya nga pala, once a day lang ba gamit mo ng YSA? Gano katagal inabot ng isang bar sayo? Black bar talaga sya no? Hehe! Thanks uli!

Pao February 27, 2009 - 12:47 am


Silka soaps are fine, but it would really take time for you to see the results..


Try the bleaching variant of YSA.. You’ll be surprised… 😀


2 weeks ung bar naglalast sakin.. Everyday ko cya ginagamit as my normal soap.. 5 minutes ko pinapatagal sa body, hinay2x lang kung magsascrub ka lalo na sa inner thighs at sa twig and doodleberries.. haha.. sa face and neck mo naman wag patagalin more than 1 minute..

Pero sa arms ko pag naghihilamos ako sa gabi pinapatagal ko halos 10 minutes, kasi mas exposed sa rays of the sun yung arms eh.. After nun obvious talaga yung change of shade.. magaling yan sa dark spots caused by pimples.. napansin nga ng kaklase ko kanina, ang ganda daw tingnan ng mukha ko, maaliwalas.. hahaha

Tip ko lang manong jerry.. hatiin mo yung bar ng YSA B.S. into two, then bawat hawak mo sa sabon bumubula ito, ispread mo lang kung saan umabot ung lather.. That way makakatipid ka…

Ok rin yung mga products na namention above.. pero magsasayang lang kau ng pera, eh may mas mura at epektibo naman..

Pinagsasabay ko yung YSA W.S. at YSA B.S… Double-strength na yung effect.. Ang napansin ko lang sa YSA W.S. is yellowish-white yung undertone mo pagkatapos, unlike YSA B.S. na pale yung undertone.. Either way, both variants helped even out my skin tone.. Almost japanese-white na nga eh..

I’m telling you guys, this soap is the most wicked soap I’ve ever bought and tried.. 4th bar ko na nga pala sa YSA B.S… Bibili pa ako next week ng YSA W.S. para double-strength… hehe..

cataclysmic21 February 27, 2009 - 9:09 am

ay naku mukhang nahuhuli na ako sa whitening dito ah. I’ve tried YSA before. yong bleaching soap nila na old one was contantly having a white “grease-like” substance around it after I use it. So it takes quite a while to lather once half-way ka na sa soap mo kasi barrier ang grease na yon. I’m guessing it’s the vegetable oil kasi vegetable soap-base sya. May YSA skin center dito sa ILOILO i’ll try to ask if meron pa sila nya kasi parang wala na itong variant na to

Pao February 27, 2009 - 6:08 pm


New and improved na yung formula ng YSA Bleaching Soap, sobrang mabula na pati rin yung YSA Glycerin Whitening Soap nila, kaya tinitipid ko.. ang daming stock sa Gaisano at Watsons.. Kakabili ko lang kagabi for my 4th bar..hehehe

PAALALA: Kung YSA Soaps ang gamit nyo lalo na yung Bleaching at Whitening (Glycerin) variants, ipasok nyo sa refrigerator yung soap dish na kinalalagyan nya kasi namamawis at nalulusaw yung soap pag room temperature eh.. This way, nakakatipid kayo.. Make sure lang na walang residue yung Bleaching soap, remember, itim yung kulay nun, baka mangitim rin yung pinaglalagyan nito sa loob ng fridge.. haha

sejabin February 28, 2009 - 10:02 pm

just want to share something guys. i havent tried ysa lemon bleaching soap pero tried and tested ko n yung gluta white and firm. buong family ko yun n ginagamit. it started sa akin then nanotice nila n umook skin ko. then sa twin brother ko. ok sya guys. try it.

Pao February 28, 2009 - 11:27 pm


sabon ba yan Gluta White and Firm? Magkano naman at gaano ka laki? Nakakalighten ba talaga ng skin?

Let us all bear in mind na di nakakalighten ang glutathione when used externally. Ito ay nakakalighten lang ng kulay when taken externally (e.g. Glutathione IV, Gluta Pills + Vit.C, Gluta Oral Spray). Kung epektibo man yan eh may certain ingredient yan na responsible sa effect na yun.. And I’m pretty sure na keratolytic yung ingredient na yun kaya nakakaimprove ng skin tone and texture. Either salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, or alpha/beta hydroxy acid… Hingayan din naman yan.. Trial and error.. Hanapin niyo yung produkto na babagay sa inyo at sa budget niyo.. 😀

cataclysmic21 February 28, 2009 - 11:56 pm

extenal application seems to have an effect pao. though hindi sya as fast and good as gluta taken internally

Pao March 1, 2009 - 12:33 am

sa liver naman nangyayari yung lightening action ng gluta diba? nagrerelease cya ng yellow melanin.. pano yun mangyayari kung sa sabon galing? na-a-absorb ng skin?

adrian March 1, 2009 - 10:59 am

Hey Pao…sa tingin mo pede n tong routine ko???…i wash my face with Ponds facial scrub then i use myra e moisturizes then myra e whitening face lotion then i apply ponds pinkish white lightening cream..is this enough??can u give me better suggestions??hehe..^_^

Mojow March 1, 2009 - 11:42 am

Hi mojow here,

Super effective ang Nivea for Men line.
Also tried Oil of Olay, effective to reduce wrinkles pa.

Also for the skin, supper effective ang Likas Papaya whitening soap.
Partnered with Nivea for Men na Whitening Lotion.

Pao March 1, 2009 - 4:41 pm


Ayos na yan chong.. I myself use Myra-e Vitawhite Faial Moisturizer.. Ok cya… Suggestion ko lang, don’t forget the other of parts of your body ha.. hehe


Iba-iba talaga siguro yung effect ng mga sabon sa atin.. Magkakaiba kasi tayo eh.. Nababagalan ako sa effect ng Likas, or baka masyado lang mabilis yung effect ng gamit ko ngayon.. Tsaka yung Nive for Men Whitening Lotion wala rin ako masyadong nakita na improvement, yun nga lang ok cya na moisturizer entire body.

Ngayon kasi kahit di ko na ipilit yung whitening lotion, kahit anong lotion na lang basta may moisture… Kasi nakikita ko naman yung epekto ng sabon na gamit ko eh, kaya ayos na kahit di man whitening yung lotion ko. That’s why bath time is my favorite time of the day.. hehehe

Jerry March 1, 2009 - 5:17 pm

@Pao: Tama ba intindi ko? 2x a day gamit mo sa YSA? Once sa whole body while bathing time and once sa face, neck at arms while hilamos sa gabi? Tama? Kung ganun medyo matipid na nga kasi inaabot parin ng 2 weeks. Less than 1 min nalang ung tagal pag sa face, di na 2 min? Hehe. Napansin ko din madali humapdi sa mukha. Tingin mo ba kaya nya paputiin yung singit kahit may dark spots caused by peklat from rashes? Hehe! Salamat parekoy! Idol sa pagpapaputi!!! Yung before and after pics, san na? Sure ako madaming nagaabang. Hehe!

Pao March 1, 2009 - 5:21 pm


My pics before and after YSA Bleaching Soap..

Makikita ninyo na nagchange yung undertone ko, from yellowish-white to yellowish-pinkish-white na.. haha.. Of course yung color din talaga nag-iba. Lalo na dun sa pics ko a month after using YSA Bleaching Soap.. Super obvious talaga ang color change..

TO SEE THE PICS, JUST CLICK ON MY NAME “Pao” right before “said:” 😀

Pao March 1, 2009 - 5:27 pm


Oh manong Jerry.. Ayan ha, nagpakita na talaga ako ng before and after pics.. hehehe.. 😀

seja March 2, 2009 - 12:00 am

all i can say is try it guys. it worked for my whole family. plus para syang dove soap. moisturized ang skin.

adrian March 2, 2009 - 6:10 pm

Hey Pao…ang kinis kinis naman ng mukha mo!!sana maging ganyan din kakinis mukha ko..im just concentrated lng kc sa mukha kc maputi n talaga body ko..ung face ko lang talaga ang nangitim kaya ganun..hehe..meron b nyan Pao sa mercury ung YSA??ginagamit mo rin ba yan sa mukha??!!

Pao March 2, 2009 - 7:32 pm


Tama yung pagkakaintindi mo manong Jerry.. hehe.. And YES, nakakalighten yan ng singit, kahit na nga yung nasa gitna ng singit kayang ichange yung kulay eh.. Yung YSA Glycerin Whitening Soap din, nakakalighten ng singit at discolorations, pero walang hapdi.. Yung bleaching variant naman magaling talaga sa dark spots.. Ang gusto ko lang sa YSA Bleaching Soap is malinis yung feeling ko after every bath, unlike sa Glycerin Whitening variant nito.. Pero ang trip ko talaga is pagsabayin yung dalawa, double-strength na.. adik. hahaha!


Thanx sa compliment.. Although, mukhang makinis nga yung mukha ko pero may imperfections din noh, at may konting scarring din dahil sa breakouts ko nung teenage years. Kaya lang makinis tingnan kasi maputi nga, pero ok na yung texture at tone dahil sa YSA B.S., bale pantay na yung kulay. Well, I can say na kuminis nga.. hehehe 😀

catclysmic March 2, 2009 - 9:10 pm

hahaha I’ve been to an NSO branch recently to get my birth certificate. And kanina lng, my mom told me na nakichismis daw ang kakilala niya na nilapitan ko sa NSO bakit daw super kinis ang mukha ko hahahaha na intriga na naman tuloy ako.. kaya lie low muna ako hahaha ang daming na iinggit anu ba yan! kala nila bading ako hahaha ganun ba talaga pag makinis ang mukha

Jerry March 2, 2009 - 9:40 pm

@Pao: Buti naman dumating na yung pics. Parang wala ko masyado makitang difference kasi mukha ka nang maputi kahit dun sa before hehehe. Pero wag ka magalala, naniniwala naman ako sayo. Hehe!

May napansin ako sa YSA. After sya gamitin, yung pag nagpupunas ka na ng towel, may residue na parang libag na white sa skin. Kailangan bang alisin yun using towel o kailangan bang ileave sya? Naisip ko baka part talaga ng soap yun na naiwan at may effect kung pinabayaan sya sa skin. O baka naman nag-pi-peel off na balat nayun, so kailangn alisin? Or pde rin puti nalang talaga ang libag ko wahaha!!!

Pao March 4, 2009 - 12:42 am


dead skin yun manong Jerry.. May microexfoliating actiong kasi yung soap.. Tanggalin mo yun while bathing thru loofah or any kind of panghilod…


oo nga… grabe makatingin yung mga tao.. lalo na pag maputi… well, bahala sila.. hehehe

Pao March 4, 2009 - 12:44 am


Nga pala.. may difference sa pics.. tingnan mong mabuti.. lalo na yung glow ng skin (undertone)… iba.. pero yung first 2 pics talaga maputi na yung kulay ko pero mas pumuti sa following pics…

adrian March 5, 2009 - 4:18 pm

Hey Pao and cata…my question ako..ano b mas magandang pampaligo at panghilamos n tubig..ung malamig o mainit???at saka alam nyo b ang effects ng stresstabs???

adrian March 5, 2009 - 6:55 pm

Hey Pao and Cata…effective b ang iwhite Korea products???para kasig gus2 kong i try e..hehe

cataclysmic March 6, 2009 - 12:00 am

yes effective yan sila basta d super cheap ha. just make sure na registered ang mga yan. baka kasi d mu na alam ang pinanlangay mu sa mukha mo. just like any product try mi if hiyang sayo.

share ko lng kais it’s summer na.
TRY nyo ang sluta-milk line ng eskinol.

effective. especiall the sun creen hindi oily!

adrian March 7, 2009 - 5:00 pm

Hey Cata and Pao..ano ang pede kong gamitin para kuminis ang mukha mo???

Jerry March 8, 2009 - 2:05 pm

@Pao: Kailan ko iloloofah yung dead skin? before YSA, after YSA o bago ibanlaw yung YSA?

Jerry March 8, 2009 - 2:22 pm

@Pao: Ano pala mangyayari kung di ko inalis ung exfoliated dead skin? Babalik ba sila sa skin o kusa bang matatanggal nalang? Ang ginagawa ko kasi nagotowel nalang ako and basta tinatanggal ko nalang lahat ng matatanggal ko, kumbaga di seryoso, hehe. Tapos nagaapply ako ng moisturizer kasi parang dry yung skin e.

Pao March 9, 2009 - 9:45 am


Magloofah or hilod ka habang nasa katawan mo pa ang YSA.. Di yan babalik sa skin, dead skin na nga eh.. Wag mo nang hintayin na kusa silang maalis… Tanggalin mo na sila agad pag may nakita ka.. And tama na magmoisturize ka, as we all know most bleaching and whitening soaps talaga are drying..


ok ang iwhite Korea Skinwhitening Vita Face Cream, kaya lang sa arms ko siya nilalagay, bale sunscreen ko siya..

para kuminis ang texture ng mukha importante ang exfoliation.. products with glycolic acid, AHA, BHA, salicylic acid are good exfoliants.. Yung Skinwhite Powerwhitening Face Solution may glycolic acid.. ayos yun..

adrian March 9, 2009 - 4:38 pm

hey Pao…effective ba ang maxi peel n pang exfoliate??pa 2 days p lang kasi akong nagamit e may nalabas na flakes sa mukha ko…ano ba pati ang dapat kong gawin sa nalabas n flakes???

Pao March 9, 2009 - 8:40 pm


ay nako!!! ba’t ka nagmaxipeel??? anong number? 1, 2 or 3? nako nako nako… gumamit ka na lang ng RENOW-D face cream kung gusto mo magexfoliate… Ok naman yung maxipeel kaya lang ang daming precautionary measures na dapat mong sundin…

pag nagka-flakes na, gently rub your face using your middle and ring finger after mong maghilamos.. dapat basa pa ha.. hanggang sa wala nang flakes na maramdaman yung mga daliri mo.. after that… pat dry with a towel.. then apply a liberal amount of moisturizer.. importante yun.. it hydrates your skin and conceals the remaining flakes.. sa umaga ganun yung gawin mo tapos dagdagan mo lang ng SUNSCREEN.. SOBRANG IMPORTANT YUN PAG GUMAGAMIT NG EXFOLIANTS… Please please please be careful..

If I were you, switch to SKINWHITE POWERWHITENING FACE SOLUTION hanggang maaga pa..

adrian March 10, 2009 - 3:12 pm

Gusto ko man Pao e di un available d2..wala ako mahanp nun e…d n lang ako gagamit nun…anyways pano b iminimize ang pores sa face??

Jerry March 10, 2009 - 11:51 pm

@Pao: Malamang yung loofah after na magstay for 5 min ung YSA sa katawan, ‘no? Yung tipong after mag-loofah, babanlawin na yung YSA. Tama ‘no? Tnx!

cataclysmic March 11, 2009 - 8:31 am

hi pao.

HMMM… effective talaga ang na disciver ko na skin white powerwhitening face solution noh? d pa sya nag cocause ng side effect like maxipeel and all. PLS APPLY SUNCREEN HA

adrian March 11, 2009 - 7:40 pm

HEY Pao and Cata…anong pedeng kong gawin para lumiit ang pores ko sa face???visible n c xa e…

Pao March 14, 2009 - 6:38 pm

gumamit ka ng mga pore minimizing products.. pero ang pwede mo gawin after mong maghilamos, banlawan mo ng ice water yung mukha mo to close your pores..

also, exfoliating can make the pores less visible.. 😀

josh March 15, 2009 - 1:26 pm

Hello guys, first time kong mag post dito. Gusto ko lang mag react sa sabon na ginamit ni pao ang puti mo. gusto ko rin itry ang ysa bleaching soap kasi gusto ko rin mag peal ang balat ko kailangan ng balat natin na magpalit para kuminis at pumuti. Bibili ako nito tom and mag popost din ako ng result after using it. Good luck sa akin. haha.

adrian March 15, 2009 - 2:46 pm

ah ok try ko..Pao ang available lang kc ditong ysa soap e ung papaya e..effective din ba ang ysa papaya para pampakinis ng mukha??

sejabin March 15, 2009 - 10:10 pm

i tried the ysa lemon bleaching soap and ok nga siya. after the ysa follow up ko is dove para maputi n and at the same time moisturized ang skin. para pa akong nag lotion buong katawan. then sa face skintel toner kasi refreshing sa mukha with pond’s.

sejabin March 16, 2009 - 1:37 am

i’m really glad n nakita ko tong site na to. i tried some of the products and these are the products that i can really recommend: skintel whitening soap (effective n pampa whiten and pampakinis pa), ysa lemon bleaching soap (fastest whitening result n na-try ko), skintel toner (very malamig sa mukha and alcohol free pa so di nakaka dry), pond’s whitening cream line (dati pa naman trusted and pond’s), dove (given n ok talaga ang dove).

di ko p natatry ang skintel powerwhitening n toner or solution because i still have the skintel toner pa. effective kasi sa akin pero mejo expensive kaya inuubos ko muna.

josh March 16, 2009 - 9:05 am

likas papaya is very effective den for me at ang tagal pang maubos tapos samahan ko ng nivea whitening repair lotion tapos for my face naman i use nivea facial foam for men, master facial cleanser for toning at nevea whitening mosturizer for mosturizing. men, it work.

Pao March 16, 2009 - 12:49 pm


sabi ko naman na magaling ang YSA Lemon Bleaching Soap diba? Mabilis pa yung effect..

Medyo umitim nga ako ngayon eh dahil nagdirect ako nung nagshoot kami ng music video project namin.. Pero unti rin babalik ang kulay ko.. Bibili pa ako mamaya ng YSA kasi ubos na.. So, pang 5th bar ko na yun.. hehehe…

Pao March 16, 2009 - 8:13 pm


lahat naman ng sabon ng YSA eh effective at magaling.. ok naman yung papaya.. pero kung gusto mong sa mabilisan na effect, yung lemong bleaching variant yung bilhin mo.. yung glycerin whitening na variant mabilis din at mild version nung lemon… yung papaya ang pinakabasic, pero ayos pa rin…

adrian March 16, 2009 - 9:45 pm

Hey Pao..ok ba ang maxipeel exfoliant??no.2 ang gamit ko…

Pao March 17, 2009 - 7:22 pm


ok siya.. but I really don’t suggest you keep on using that… it’s quite risky.. please find an alternative… 0_o

hanapin mo yung toner na gamit ni sejabin.. yung skintel toner… it contains glycolic acid which is a good and mild exfoliant… so much better and safer than maxipeel’s hydroquinone content… 😀

sejabin March 17, 2009 - 8:33 pm

sobrang ok yung skintel toner. malamig sa mukha at di nakakadry. at pagpahid mo ng moisturizer talab n talab. wla pang peeling pero after several days lalambot at kikinis face mo. mejo pricey nga lang pero malaki naman yung bottle eh.

adrian March 18, 2009 - 8:47 am

Hey Pao..i think effective sakin ang maxipeel kc pa 3 days ko pa lang ginagamit ung astringent e kuminis na talga mukha ko..open pores kc ako pero ngaun d na xa kita dahil sa maxipeel!!d pati maxado nagrereact ang skin ko sa tret at hq kaya go lang muna ako d2…hehe

cataclysmic March 18, 2009 - 9:48 am

@ sejabin

magkano yan?
san pwede makabili?
gani ka laki?
whitenning ba yan?

Pao March 18, 2009 - 1:26 pm

hay nako… heto na naman si cata… parang skinwhite powerwhitening face solution lang yang skintel toner… nasubukan ko na yan nung highschool.. maling variant pa nga ang nabili ko eh, dapat yung for oily skin pero pang dry skin yung nabili ko.. hahaha.. pero ayos pa rin.. di ko nga lang nasundan kasi mahal nga eh..


actually nagmaxipeel number 2 din ako noon.. pero once lang… ayoko kasi magdepend sa hydroquinone eh.. nakakacancer kasi.. tsaka nagiging photosensitive yung skin.. just be careful when using that… tsaka, you alone are responsible for your own skin… 😀

adrian March 18, 2009 - 7:23 pm

Hey Pao..pag gumamit ka ba ng maxipeel bawal magpainit???

sejabin March 18, 2009 - 8:19 pm

parang hindi ok yung maxi peel kasi lahat ng mga kakilala ko n gumamit nyan halos nasunog ang mukha after pumuti. and hindi natural pagkaputi nya.

hindi pareho yung skintel toner sa skinwhite powerwhitening solution. walang alcohol content yung skintel at hindi siya whitening. maglilighten yung skin mo coz mag eexfoliate sya. yung exfoliation nya is hindi halata at yun ang mganda dun.

cataclysmic March 19, 2009 - 12:37 pm

I spent almost 500 bucks kagabi buying KSA bleaching cream 199, skinwhite powerwhitening lotion and face solution at YSA lemon bleaching soap. BUti na lng may YSA skin care branch dito samin sa ILOILO. AFter 1 week ang result kng KSA bleaching cream. post na lng ako pag may improvements na.

Pao March 19, 2009 - 6:30 pm


OO.. bawal magpaaraw pag gumagamit nyan.. hassle talaga, eh nakatira tayo sa bansang tropical ang climate eh, ang hirap umiwas sa araw… tsaka mamumula pa ang mukha mo at mainit yung pakiramdam… di na ako uulit sa maxipeel na yan..

but, whatever suits you adrian… panindigan mo lang, tsaka kargo mo balat mo, karagdagang pag-iingat talaga sa hydroquinone.. good luck


magkapareho lang yung skinwhite at skintel.. yung face solution ng skinwhite contains glycolic acid, while skintel contains alpha hydroxy acid.. Both are the same keratolytic ingredients than refine the texture of the skin.. at tama ka na naglalighten ang skin kasi nga keratoytic eh ang mga yun.. may alcohol nga yung skinwhite unlike skintel, pero di naman talaga nakakaputi yung skinwhite eh… it just lifts off the top-most layer of our skin, thus “keratolytic”.. good for pimples and discolorations.. ang skinwhite may tingling sensation ng konti, while ang skintel malamig sa mukha.. ang skintel mahal, while ang skinwhite mura.. hahaha…

but overall, both are toners… ang pinagkaiba lang is may alcohol ang skinwhite, tsaka mas madaling maglift off ng top layer ang skinwhite compared to skintel based on my experience..

adrian March 20, 2009 - 8:34 am

Thx sa advice Pao…mag iingat na lang ako sa paggamit ni2..hehe thx^_^

Pao March 22, 2009 - 12:24 am

yo! unti-unti nang bumabalik yung kulay ko prior to pangingitim due to music video shoot.. yehey… galing talaga ng YSA… ^_^

sejabin March 23, 2009 - 5:37 am

ang ginagawa ko after using any whitening soaps and scrubbing or exfoliating i use dove soap para moisturized ang skin. mas malinis at pantay tignan after using dove lalo n sa face. try it guys.

boytoy March 23, 2009 - 10:59 am

Guys, ok ba yung Loreal Expert Men whitening line? Nivea For Men kasi gamit ko and I’m planning to shift to Loreal.

Bunsoi March 23, 2009 - 2:46 pm


Ask mo si Pao, xa ang whitening guru namin dito, hehe.

Ako naman, persnoally I don’t think effective ang Nivea for Men. I have already tried Nivea for Men 5-in-1 Whitening Moisturiser, and it never gave my face any improvements. On the lighter side, it’s nice for moisturising. But for the whitening, I doubt.

boytoy March 23, 2009 - 5:28 pm


Thanks. Been using Nivea for Men for almost a year na pero hindi nmn ako masyadong pumuti.


Pao, tanong lng ako if Ok itong bagong routine ko. Kahapon ko lng binili yung iba dito. Retire ko na yung Nivea For Men Whitening ko.


capsules taken everday
(Myra-E Vit E 400UI and Centrum)

1. BioDerm Germicidal Soap (face and neck only)
2. YSA Lemon Bleaching Soap
3. Soap Opera Bath Shop Whitening Gluta Soap
4. Soap Opera PowerWhitening Body Scrub (every 2-3 days)
5. Loreal Expert Men whitening Facial Wash
6. skinWhite PowerWhitening Face Solution
7. Myre-E Whitening Face Lotion (Moisturizer)

Pao March 23, 2009 - 5:41 pm


yeah.. ayos na yan.. basta whatever works for you..
pero, how about wearing sunscreen? (may SPF15 na yung myra-e) pero not just on your face but also on others parts of your body na exposed sa rays of the sun.. pinakaimportante yun sa lahat..

boytoy March 23, 2009 - 6:17 pm


I’m using Nivea For Men Whitening 5-in-1 Lotion. SPf-4 lng sya. ok lng ba yun? yun yung ginagamit ko sa body ko, kaso hindi everyday, minsan lng. Any better suggestions?

Pao March 24, 2009 - 10:07 pm


nakagamit na ako nyan noon bago pa inilabas yan sa market… bale, nakasample ako ng isang malaking botelya nyan.. hanggang sa naubos ko eh wala namang visible changes sa complexion ko.. although okay siya as a body moisturizer… tsaka, SPF4 is ok for indoor protection against bouncing UV rays.. pag outdoors naman a minimum of SPF10 to SPF15 ang kelangan..

Pao March 30, 2009 - 10:56 pm

did you know na may glutathion oral capsule na ang skinwhite ngayon? they’ve crossed the border from being just a compnay which produces soaps, lotions and face creams… grabe.. baka mas mura yung gluta nila.. wahehehe…

may glutathione soap and lotion na rin ang skinwhite… macheck ko nga..

Pao April 8, 2009 - 3:23 am


baka naman yung sabon talaga yung ipinapasada mo sa balat mo.. tipirin mo kasi.. bawat hawak ng kamay sa sabon grabeng lather na ang napoproduce nun.. ako kahit twice a day pa maligo tumatagal naman yung YSA ah.. depende yan sa paggamit eh.. tsaka paano eepek yung sabon eh 4 days pa lang sayo, tsaka dapat 5mins talaga pinapatagal sa balat.. epektibo naman sa akin eh, ang bilis pa nga.. kita niyo naman sa picture diba? habulin niyo yung kulay na yun.. wahahaha!!!

pero, since summer time, parang gusto ko magbabad sa araw.. sanang evenly-baked ang kulay ko sa araw.. ayoko ng tan-lines.. hehehe… ^_^

Pao April 10, 2009 - 3:21 am

tsaka cata, nakita ko nga pala yung tagged pics mo sa facebook a few days ago.. mukhang pang-moreno yung undertone mo… talagang di agad2x yun effect ng YSA BS sa balat mo.. ^_^ hehehe

Cataclysmic April 11, 2009 - 3:32 pm

@ Pao,

I just told my side of the story about ysa pao. As yo said hiyang-hiyangan lng yan, so who are you to say na it was because of my undertone. FYI, medically speaking the three key pigment players are melanin, eumelanin at phaeomelanin. You are in no such authority to say na mereno ang undertone ko kasi i’m of chinese and spanish decent. The pics were taken in low light (READ: BAR) at a dispicable 3.2 megaPIX. Are you medically knowledgeable sa claims mo? Tough luck because I am. The soap didn’t work I think kasi 1 pa lng na try ko at hindi pa natagalan ang gamit ko. I decided to stop using it kasi madali sya malusaw. Belo lng ako at pond’s flawlesswhite.

If in any way I have discredited you in your ysa claims, don’t bark back at me. I am entitled to my own reviews. FYI your opinion was unsolicited.

Too bad your photos appear blanched white due to lighting lng… DUH! Nag-aadvice2x, wala naman medical background. The nerve!

Cataclysmic April 11, 2009 - 3:34 pm

trying to be very japanese ka rin ah noh? too bad you don’t have the eyes for it.

sejabin April 11, 2009 - 10:08 pm

fighting over good looks. guys so pathetic. when it comes to whitening products i believe talagang hiyangan lang yan. like for myself. di ko alam ah pero sobrang nakakadry ang m ga whitening soaps n yan so i always follow up with dove soap. hindi lang maputi yung skin kundi healthy pa tingnan. moreno ang skintone ko pero lahat ng friends ko sinasabi n ang linis ko tignan.

dont fight over it guys. peace!

This is supposed to be the comments section for further discussion of the post Whitening Skin for Men. Please show respect by means of NOT posting comments considered out-of-topic.

Keep your cool, guys.

And I say,

World Peace 🙂

sejabin April 11, 2009 - 11:02 pm

i stopped using the skinwhite powerwhitening solution or toner. natatapangan ako sa knya. bumalik na ako sa skintel coz sobrang malamig sa mukha plus nakakaganda ng skintone. super effective kahit mejo mahal.

im still using ysa lemon bleaching soap and dove. pond’s cream pa rin sa face.

yeah guys. lahat naman guapo eh. world peace!!!

Pao April 12, 2009 - 2:05 pm


hala.. wala naman akong ibig sabihin dun.. opinion ko lang naman yun.. lahat naman tayo may opinion eh.. bakit grabe ka mag-react at bitter pa? para yun lang? natamaan ko ba yung EGO mo? Sayo na yang medical background mo.. Enjoy mo lang lahat ng terms and info.. Oo na, matalino ka na sa medicine and all..

Well then, sorry kung di mo nagustuhan yung napost ko.. Nakalimutan ko na napakasensitive mo tulad nung sa mena post ni jhunkzee noon.. Sorry na cata.. I didn’t mean to anger you or siraan ka..

May chinese heritage ako about 1/4 to 1/8.. I’m not trying to be japanese, I don’t need the eyes, I have all the things that I need to be asian. I’m only embracing my ASIANness because we ASIANS RULE! Oh yeah.. hehehe

Panghuling post ko na to about you or anything concerning you. All I want is peace.. I never should’ve posted that freaking crap of opinion.. SORRY NA CATA OK? And you’re right, nadisappoint lang din ako kasi parang nadisappoint ka kasi sa YSA. Mahal ko kasi ang YSA eh, too bad it didn’t last that long for you. Tulad nung parang nadisappoint din ako sa SKINWHITE POWERWHITENING TONER, tapos pinagtanggol mo diba at sabi mo pa na huwag kong siraan. Parang ganun na rin yun.

For the last time.. I APOLOGIZE. And sana sa ibang tao na nagbabasa ng blog, be careful of what you post in here baka kasi makainsulto kayo ng iba, take it from my experience. And also, don’t react violently over spilled milk, ego and pride ain’t everything. It’s not worth it ya’ll.


Cata bati na tayo… Kung ayaw mo naman makipagbati eh ok lang din. Basta, naexplain ko na ang sarili ko. Maliit na bagay lang yun, wag na tayong magdwell over this.. PLEASE? I’M VERY SORRY… -_-

Pao April 12, 2009 - 2:19 pm

thanks sa description.. pero honestly, sino ba ang apektado? ^_^


Pao April 12, 2009 - 2:54 pm


ginagamit mo rin ba yung dove soap sa mukha? ^_^

sejabin April 12, 2009 - 8:46 pm


yeah ginagamit ko rin sa face yung dove. ok naman kasi malambot sa facial skin ko after ko gawin yun.

moreno ang skintone ko and im not aiming n maging super puti. maging pantay lang complexion ko ok na. kaya naman ako gumagamit ng whitening soaps eh para kahit papano maging radiant ang skin. most people say n kahit moreno ako i look so clean daw and very neat.

check nyo n lang ang friendster ko. lpharigue06@yahoo.com

mahilig ako mag beach at talagang babad ako sa araw. di ko kayang i sacrifice ang outdoor activities ko para lang magpaputi. i use sunblock, whitening creams at soaps para naman di naman sobrang maging negro.

ask ko lang po. ok ba yung eskinol glutamilk (tama ba name?)? i want to switch from ponds to a different whitening cream kasi parang naiimune n skin ko sa pond’s. halos wala n whitening effect. moisturizing n lang.

Chris April 13, 2009 - 1:17 am


I have just seen that there is a little thing going on here. Please work it out guys and don’t take things personally.

I have noticed that this post has brought about the most numerous, useful and very informative comments in PGG. Let’s continue to discuss and stay on topic.

Now going back. Has anyone tried Neutrogena or L’OREAL for Men products? Any feedback? 🙂

sejabin April 13, 2009 - 6:08 am

effective ba talaga as a skin whitener yung mga glutathione pills n yan? kasi mostly n nababasa ko sa internet if taken orally di daw effective or wala talagang effect. ang expensive pa naman. mahal naman mag painject ng gluta.

may alam ba kayong brand ng gluta n effective talaga?

Cataclysmic April 13, 2009 - 9:22 am

@ Pao,

Precisely! My point is that, did I ever made ANY COMMENT ABOUT YOU? All comments/reviews that I posted here were about the products of to the specific problem that was addressed to me. I never gave unsolicited advice. I may have given recommendations and general infos but but NOT INSINUATE or IMPLY about something OF WHICH I LACK BASIS or have not indepth knowledge. I’ll continue this later….

Pao April 13, 2009 - 1:37 pm


tama na.. wag mo na icontinue.. busog na ako sa mga previous posts natin.. gets ko na ang point mo okay? mali na nga ako. I admit my mistake.. I get it already. Sheesh.. I already said sorry and I mean it. I’m not gonna discuss this further kasi tapos na to. Peace ^_^


tationil yata yung brand na widely used “gluta IV”… nagpapa-inject si claudine baretto ng gluta kaya parang papel na yung kulay niya, di rin naman nya idineny eh..

mas epektibo yung injectables kasi 100% ang naaabsorb diretso sa bloodstream.. pag gluta pills kasi dumadaan pa sa digestive system at ilang percentage na lang ang naaabsorb, 20% yata, although di ako sure. Si cata yata alam yung percentage of gluta absorption pag pills..

and sejabin, may epekto naman ang gluta pills or gluta na orally taken.. kasi yung pinsan ng pinsan ko puro gluta pills… eh ngayon ang puti na talaga at ang kinis pa tingnan.. nagpablonde ng buhok, at nagsuot ng contacts.. eh ngayon para nang tisay/hybrid ang hitsura.. ang ganda tingan ng kulay niya, radiant and glowing.. pero ilang months din yata cya nagtake ng gluta pills..

pero pag gluta IV(intravenous), mga 3 shots lang sayo along with your double-dose of vitamin C intake eh makikita mo na yung effects..

and let’s keep in mind na di lang pampaputi ang gluta.. may mga nakausap ako na naggugluta at sabi nila they feel very alive and energetic pag take sila ng take. tsaka kumikinis nga talaga ang balat nila, with a very youthful glow.. nakakinggit nga eh.. pero di ako magpapahuli.. sa susunod magte-take na rin ako.. ^_^

Pao April 13, 2009 - 1:59 pm


nga pala.. next time na gagamit ka ng maxipeel #2 or #3.. ihalo mo cya sa toner or astringent mo.. for example 135mL ng Eskinol Clear then yung pinakamaliit na botelya ng maxipeel #2.. Optional na lagyan mo ng konting vitamin E oil..

use this combination kung desperado ka nang mawala yung pimples (small or cystic) at dark spots.. give it a week and you’ll see great improvements..

pag nadilute kasi yung maxipeel, di na matapang yung renewing effects niya sa balat pero it’s effect on pimples, discoloration and roughness ay nandun pa rin..

wag lang kaligtaang maglagay ng SUNSCREEN.. at least SPF15.. IMPORTANTE YUN!

although, after a month of two.. pagpahingahin mo muna yung balat mo sa combination na to, kasi may hydroquinone pa rin yun eh.. magswitch ka muna ng ibang toner or yung existing toner na gamit mo minus the maxipeel solution.. pag nakarest na yung balat ng ilang months, pwede nang iresume yung eskinol + maxipeel #2 combi..

I don’t just recommend it, I use it.. ^_^
Like, 1 week before an event, malaki ang naitutulong ng combi na to sa akin..

Pasensya na kung di ko sinabi sayo adrian ha.. maramot ba? hehehe… oh ngayon nashare ko na.. ganito ang gawin mo next time.. PEACE! 😀

sejabin April 13, 2009 - 9:01 pm

well parang effective nga rin yung mga whitening pills na yan. yung friend ko gumamit ng met and 2 mos pa lang talagang glowing ang skin nya. sabi nya nakatry n daw sya ng ibang brand pero no effect. yung met lang daw talaga ang gumana sa knya. pero mahal ang met compared to other glutathione pills. yung iba 1500 or 1000 lang yung met is 2300. sa watsons ako tumingin.

hindi rin maputi yung friend ko. pareho lang kami ng skintone. pero nung nagtake n siya ng met sobrang glowing at luminis ang hitsura nya.

gusto ko magtry kaso baka sa akin di effective.

Cataclysmic April 14, 2009 - 12:23 am

yes, mas effective ang injection or intavenous(IV) na gluta. as pointed above, mas readily sya naaabsorb ng tissues kagaya ng skin. Though depending on your skin tone and ethnicity pa rin and tancha ng derma but not derma can be totally sure na pag reach mo say 3 or 5 sessions eh puputi ka na ng konti. Bare in mind na this is on a case to case basis. The 3 to 5 sessions na assumption is soley based on statistics and rests on the fact na tayong mga pinoy, majority of us falls under either in Class III or Class IV (nakalimutan ko ang tawag sa classification) among sa “skin type/tone classification.” Taking into consideration na unique ang bawat tao at mas lalo na tayong mga pinoy kasi we are a melting-pot of different combination of races, eh talagang iba-iba ang resulta. Iba cguro madaling puputi sa IV gluta. Yong iba baka delayed ang effect ng konti. Yong iba super tagal. Or yong iba talaga d tatablan ng IV gluta for skin whitenning. Which I would like to emphasize na SIDE EFFECT lng yan na gustong-gusto nating mga pinoy, pro hate nga mga westeners. Pro kahit d po kayo pumuti eh, mas more ang chances na you’ll feel more energy, lalakas ang immune system nyo, madedelay ang wear-and-tear ng katawan nyo at kikinis ang balat nyo pro yon nga lng d guarantee na puputi kayo pro kikinis.

Fos cystic type or nodular type of acne I suggest you go to a dermatologist. As experimentation MAY have it’s fallback and damage may be catastrophic as the skin may be scared and the acne uncontrollable. With cystic type kasi, may na observe akong former classmate na parang nag deform yong face nya to the point na naging “rubber-like” at nag sag ng konti.

If you think your acne is getting worse or is spreading, go to a certified derma na to save money and time. OTC products are only good is minimal lng acne mo at hindi super pig or problematic like the cystic type or nodular type.

DISCLAIMER: these are just opinions and should not be in any way replace a proper consultation with a certidfied dermatologist.

Cataclysmic April 14, 2009 - 12:43 am

BTW, oral gluta is reduced when it passes the digestive system as claimed aboved. The liver kasi metabolizes it along with all the other drugs in the body kahit pa ito at “liver-friendly” like gluta. so when you take a 500mg gluta more or less half na lng ang pwedeng ma utilize ng body… don’t worry that happens to all drugs that we take in kahit vitamins. Yong IV gluta since it by-passes the liver, it’s realyy 500mg that goes into your body’s general circulation kaya mas effective sya at faster kasi mas potent sya in terms of amount.

adrian April 14, 2009 - 10:22 pm

thx sa advice Pao..hehe..kala ko kc maxipeel hater ka e..wahaha

sejabin April 19, 2009 - 11:44 pm

sorry adrian pero if you’re gonna ask me di ko talaga irerecommend ang maxi peel. lahat kasi ng kilala ko n gumamit nyan eh namuti pero mukhang sunog ang balat. halatang na abuse ang skin.

i believe in mid potent products. when it comes to toner super recommended ko ang skintel. sabayan mo ng whitening creams mo ang skintel at magiging even ang skin tone n super healthy pa tignan.

mejo may kamahalan nga lang ang toner n yun.

Pao April 22, 2009 - 1:23 am

ayos lang naman yung maxipeel eh.. basta ba idilute lang sa toner.. tsaka kung marunong ka gumamit at magtake ng precautions when using maxipeel eh ayos lang.. nasubukan ko na yan noon.. tatlong beses pa nga eh. tsaka medyo nabilad ako sa araw ng konti, pero di naman nasunog yung balat ko.. learn to use SUNSCREEN kasi.. yun lang naman. tsaka isang pasada lang ng cotton ball sa mukha yung pag-apply, NEVER RUB IT. yun lang.. Happy PEELING adrian.. hehehe ^_^

james May 2, 2009 - 1:08 am

effective sakin ung met, ang puti ko na compare b4…. ok na sakin kahet oral lng, mahal kase mgpaIV.

Pao May 2, 2009 - 3:17 pm


did you take vitamin C along with met? Tsaka, what other gluta brands can you suggest na safe, effective at hindi bogus yung dami ng contents?

cataclysmic May 5, 2009 - 4:23 pm

I just bought OXIPURE tea tree plus advanced whitening. Post lng ako in the next few weeks if may improvements. Also bought the RDL papaya body wash with sunscreen.

james May 10, 2009 - 7:54 pm


of course you have to take vit.c along with gluta, hindi pwede mwala ang vit.c just to keep the gluta in its absorbable form. met lang talga na try ko and nageffect sakin kaya hindi na ako nagtry ng iba and im really happy now, whiter, healthier, acne free and glowing skin compared before!

Pao May 11, 2009 - 3:51 pm


I know right… Tanong ko lang kung meron nang vitamin C na kasama yung met.. kasi pag meron nang vit.C na kasama, kelangan mo i-adjust yung intake.. kasi yung ibang brands may 100mg vitamin C nang kasama or kung anong amount ba ng vit.C.. tapos kelangan pa rin uminom ng vit.C tabs diba kasi kulang pa yung vit.C na kasama na sa isang gluta capsule… mga 2000mg vit.C for every 1000mg ng gluta dapat ang intake per day, pero di daw dapat sumobra sa 4 grams (4000mg) ang intake ng vit.C para safe.. yun ang sabi ng med student friend ko, masama na kung sobra..

kasi dapat doble yung take ng vitamin C para sa lightening effect ng gluta to kick in diba..

have you heard of “Immunolocal”? parang powder form cya, tapos hinahalo sa drink mo.. it raises the glutathione levels daw of the body.

cataclysmic May 12, 2009 - 1:49 pm

I beg to disagree. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. That’s why the body cannot store it for prolonged periods of time and that’s the precise reason why we have to take it everyday. Any excess amounts will be excreted by the kidney via the urine, as long as there’s enough water in the body. Thus toxicity is avoided. It has a high affinity to water. So rule of thumb: if your taking large amounts of vitamin C or any drug for that matter it is highly important to increase your fluid intake, especially water.

For the immune system to be stimulated you need at least 500mg of Vitamin C, but there’s actually no precise amount as to how much is the maximum. So most people just take 1-4 tabs of 500mg of Vit. C. As long as you take a minimum of 500-1000mg, there’s really no point in taking in megadoses if there’s no research claiming certain benefits. For glutathione to work properly, you do need to take in Vit. C but you should ask a doctor how much vit. C because it is more important to maintain a good blood level (amount of drug in the blood) for you body to constanly maximize the utilization of glutathione than taking megadoses on a daily basis. You might start with 2000mg for a few days and then down to 1000mg or even 500mg per day so as to maintain the blood level. Just ask your doctor.

Pao May 12, 2009 - 3:02 pm

aaaaaaaaaaaah…. yeah sinabi rin nya yun.. nagkicrystalize pa nga daw yung urine eh.. kaya marming tubig daw.. opo nurse.. susundin namin yun, sa doctor kami kokonsulta… oooh.

james May 13, 2009 - 11:47 pm


cataclysmic is right, any excess amount of vit.c in the body will just be excreted through urine. nagtry rin ako ng gluta IV last month, ung tationil which is widely used dito satin, i must say within like 3 days lang… kita na agad ung glow and pag pink ng skin ko compare sa oral intake. thats why if you really are looking for fast, safe and effective results just go with gluta IV. matagal din kase makita results with oral intake, dumadaan pa sa digestive system which makes the body not to absorb it 100%.

Pao May 14, 2009 - 2:15 pm


oo nga eh.. pero mahal naman ang tationil… although pag bumili ka ng isang box, P800 lang ang pagpapa-inject sa skin clinics/doctor.. sige lang.. masusubukan ko rin yang gluta IV soon.. pwede rin ba na pag nagpainject ka eh magtake ka rin orally ng gluta? diba walang overdose naman sa gluta? hmm?..

guess007 May 14, 2009 - 2:19 pm

Try Master Eskinol Triple-Effect Whitening Facial Cleanser.. It contains Glutathione Extract.. I’ve been using the product for almost a month now and the results are great.. I also use Met Whitening Soap to whiten my whole body.. And lastly, use whitening lotions with SPF.. I use Alaur Whitening Lotion with SPF25..

jonah May 14, 2009 - 11:52 pm

ah gnagamit ko is likas papaya soap i know pang babae pero sobrang efective tlaga tpos nivea whitening lotion for men tpos payong un ok na hahah

Pao May 15, 2009 - 3:14 pm


pinatest drive ng distributor ng nivea products yung ibang produkto nila sa amin.. nagamit ko na yang nivea whitening lotion for men before pa mailabas sa market dito sa philiz.. naubos ko na lang ang malaking container eh walang change sa complexion ko sa forearms.. di pumantay sa torso ko yung kulay. although it was a good body moisturizer. pero it didn’t live up to it’s main effect which should have been “Whitening”.

tsaka wag na magpayong.. 0_o sabi mo sakin nagsasunscreen ka every 30 minutes… hehehe

gumamit ka na lang ng sabon na may “melfade”.. di ka madaling umitim pag naarawan ka. it prevents the production of melanin from progressing kasi.. astig nga eh.. twice ako nagsasabon, dalawang klase.. hehehe

pero wag lang sumobra at baka maging mumu na.. wahahaha! ^_^

Kat May 29, 2009 - 4:13 pm

Tan pinoy guys are hot. I’m a white girl and why would you want to whiten your skin?!

same reason why girls would wanna whiten their skin.. Asian White-Skin syndrome… don’t ask… it exists and it’ll be hard for that mentality to go away.. ^_^

cataclysmic June 22, 2009 - 9:46 pm

Master by Eskinol has a new whitening range dubbed Whitening PLus… it has also SPF 16 and ZerOil tech

Pao June 24, 2009 - 12:01 am


have you tried the oil control moisturizer? it does work, it controls oil production for a long period of time.. and ayos din yung Master Facial Scrub Whitening Plus with Gluta Complex..

muhkang similar lang naman sa Eskinol whitening line eh since both are sister companies.. ang scent lang ang pinagkaiba along with a few other key ingredients.

nagamit mo na ba yung cream variant nun? ayos lang? susubok rin sana ako kasi ok yung facial scrub niya eh..

Pao June 24, 2009 - 12:26 am

ngek mali pala.. sa iisang company lang pala ang Eskinol at Master.. hehe.. from Sara Lee.. ang difference lang ng both products eh yung oil-controlling ingredients at masculine scent.. ^_^

catalysmic June 29, 2009 - 1:07 am

adrian June 29, 2009 - 8:35 pm

Hello again guys…long time no talk..wahehe…ask ko lang Pao..nagamit ka pa rin ba ng maxipeel??kc ako nagamit pa rin ako e..ask ko lang kung lalo kang pumuti..hehe

Pao July 3, 2009 - 6:49 am


oo adrian.. pero diluted siya with another toner para hindi matapang.. it seems na di ako nagkakaroon ng purging stage sa tretinoin na galing sa maxipeel. ang nangyayari eh di na ako masyado nagkakabreakout. kung may pimple man na malaki eh mabilis lumiit after 3 days flat na. yung dark spots naman wala na akong problema jan kasi mabilis magfade at lalo ngang pumuti yung balat ko.. pati siko kasali… wahehe.. pero hanggang 3 months ka lang gumamit nyan ha, lalo na at puro yung gamit mo.. wag sumobra at baka ma-absorb na ng katawan mo yung hydroquinone, makakasama yan sa liver mo.. magresearch ka na lang sa bad long-term effects ng ingredients niyan..

nice to hear from you adrian.. it’s nice to have friendly people like you here. nakakatakot kasi awayin yung mga mababait eh, unlike the not-so-frienly ones. wahaha! cheers mate! ^_^

Pao July 4, 2009 - 12:44 pm


I’m not teasing but can you at least spell the brand correctly so that people will get the right info? LoL.. Peace ^_^

Btw, whatever works for your skin ayos na rin.. Magresearch ka lang.. Read the label then kung may time ka research mo sa Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary yung ingredient ng product na medyo curious ka para mapanatag ang loob mo.. that’s what I usually do.. and I learn a lot of things just by doing that. 😀

Marthy July 7, 2009 - 11:48 am


may na try akong new brand ng soup!
magical gluthathion!

i think effective nan siya kasi 2 days ko palang siya gimagamit my whitening effect na kaagad pero medyo nakaka dry lang ng skin pero lagyan neo nalang ng moisturizer!

I respect him more than anything else in this forum, isa siya sa mga nauna sa forum na ito at sumunod lang tayo. he knows a lot compared to us kasi may medical background siya at tsaka he’s tested a lot of products na. kaya walang pwede kumontra sa kanya. no pun intended, seryoso yun.


tsaka kuya cata, I’m not getting in your way, forum lang to ano ka ba. hehehe… peace.

So, kuya cata.. tulad ng tanong ko na di mo sinagot noon.. Ayos lang ba ang Master with Gluta-complex na facial cream? 😀


musta na ang whitening routine? ilang shades ang ipinuti mo? ^_^

sejabin July 12, 2009 - 9:12 pm


ok lang naman. di naman ako nagpapaputi talaga as in yung white. moreno skin tone ko so magpantay lang skin ko ok na sa akin yun.

cataclysmic July 14, 2009 - 11:17 pm

Yes Pao. effective. Sun protection + whitening + oil control = gwapito points on the rise! what more can a guy ask for? everything we need all in one cream for us men. SPF 15 is enough for everyday protection. You may go to as high as SPF 30 but it gets sticky as you go higher. UNLESS if it’s oil-free or from the VMV ARMADA line which is super effective in blocking UVA/UVA na the skin lightens by itself naturally. They say the amada face shield SPF 30 is just like water with SPF! Again that’s a great buy! mahal man pero if you count the experience and quality from the product, sulit na d ba?


1) VMV AMADA line (SPF 30 and UP, even up to 70 for the Armada Sports!)
2) Hawaiian Tropic Ozone SPF30 and Ultimate Ozone SPF 70++
3) SkinWhite Glutathione SPF20 best for daily protection plus whitening. It really is non-greasy.
4) Master Glutathione Plus Cream SPF16++
5) Suncelle by Fuller Life SPF30 face and body sun screen. Very lightweight and non-greasy. VALUE for money! With Vitamin E pa!

Pao July 15, 2009 - 5:53 pm

oi suncelle by fullerlife meron din ako nyan.. pero di ko ginagamit.. ayoko kasi ng amoy eh.. tsaka ko lang ginagamit pag nasa beach.. hehe..

nga pala.. nabasa ko sa isang forum yung new Block&White Ultima with Glutathione… nadagdagan lang ng gluta pero effective pa rin.. ang daming good feedbacks.. effective daw talaga, kaya pala mahal kahit 100mL lang.. yung sa SkinWhite di ko pa natatry… curious curious…

sejabin July 23, 2009 - 8:01 pm

na try nyo n ba yung olay white radiance? 2 weeks ko n sya gingamit. ok sya as a moisturiser pero walang whitening effect pero kumikinis naman face ko.

kei August 10, 2009 - 8:47 pm

punta kau sa the face shop sa may festival mall, super effective yun ung friend ko ang ganda tlaga ng face kaso sobrang mahal nman korean shop kc un eh 🙂

lance August 15, 2009 - 6:36 pm

anong soap ang pinaka effective??

and what din product na makahelp na makapag whiten ng skin, yung magandang puti ng face… yung natural na puti


sejabin August 16, 2009 - 6:33 am

lurker lang ako sa site na to pero ….gusto ko talaga mag ask..xD

….tanong ko lang kung mag-aaply ng e.g.. ung NFM(whitening and moisturizer) every morning lang ba un??……..hmmmm kung vry morning lang un?? maproprotectahan pa rin ba ang face ko kahit morning ko sya nilagyan tapos magbibilad ako sa tanghali na? (kasi uuwi ako sa bahay namin every lunch)

HOPE may maka answer asap ..xD thnx in adv…..

lance August 27, 2009 - 7:48 pm

hype duo ba maganda?
renew placenta?
psalmstre new placenta?
sensa white?

cataclysmic August 28, 2009 - 12:19 pm

@ anonymous: NO if u applies it say 8AM, ideally you apply it every 2 hours. pro if you say indoors and u don’t sweat that much it’s ok. pro before you go home for lunch, wash your fash then re-apply 30 mins before or mas better if 1 hour before para it really gets absorbed before you face the sun

@ lance: effective ang hype duo. I dnt use any placenta products. for hype duo, use epecially their intensive day cream/lotion with SPF25. effective. in 2-3weeks kita mo na agad. use it with skinwhite powerwhitening solution for 7 days or more during the night, put hype SPF25 kahit gabi + skinwhite powerwhitening cream classic to finish it up. then wake up to fairer skin. mag hype ka lng sa umaga before you go out hehehe

lance August 28, 2009 - 4:19 pm


wala na nung skinwhite powerwhitening solution di ba?
pinalitan na nila ng skinwhite cleansers?
pati yung powder ni kim chiu?

yung hype duo na soap?? yung green papaya po yung tukoy ko, yun po ba yung effective?


anonymous August 28, 2009 - 7:17 pm

thnx cata xD

but 🙁 ..parang ndi ata kaya ng time sched ko…kasi 7:00 AM punta na ako school tapos(usually nilalagay ko ung NFM ko b4 i go to school..ok lang ba un??) break namin 11:45-12:45 at mukhang la na akong time para mag wash sa school kasi it took 20 mins(back and forth) para makarating ako sa bahay(nakasakay)……T_T..at minsan pag may time nag rewash ako sa tanghali(sa bahay na) tapos re apply ulit ng NFM….kaya lang minsan nauubusan na ng oras kasi baka malate sa class….(any advice?)

cataclysmic August 30, 2009 - 2:35 am

hmmm cge sa bahay ka na lng mag apply make sure na fully absorbed na sya before you go back to school… since time nga is your enemy

cataclysmic August 30, 2009 - 2:39 am


meron pa yong solution nakita ko, iloilo ako. better ang solution kasi glycolic acid ang potent ingredient non unlike maxipeel na tretinoin at hydroquinone. stay away sa hydroquinone. binalik na lika ang classic cream. kasi naman we guys dont need the power finish like kim chiu

cataclysmic August 30, 2009 - 2:40 am

gluta-c ng hype ang effective

anonymous August 30, 2009 - 10:59 am

so 2 times po ako mag lalalagay(1 sa morning b4 school tsaka sa tanghali b4 ako babalik sa school)? …kasi nagtatan na mukha ko ndi na pantay sa balat ko T_T…….

Jake October 26, 2009 - 9:39 am

Hi Guys!

This is also my first time to join here. Gusto ko lang kasi mag share ng product for whitening na naging effective for me. I don’t know if you ever heard about the “KOJIC ACID”. It is a substance found in JAPAN which is effective for whitening skin. Medyo na curious ako about it, kaya I have tried “DREAM WHITE” whitening soap. I have read the ingredients first, and it has VITAMIN C, kaya di na ako nag hesitate na gamitin. Ok sya gamitin, hindi sya yung malagkit after use, refreshing ang feeling and the citrus scent is there to relax you, kasi nga may VITAMIN C ingredient sya. I am using it for about 6 months now, and last 2 months ago, when we had a little gathering ng mga friends ko nung college…natutuwa lang ako, kasi yung pinakagwapo kong classmate, inggit na inggit sa skin ko…kasi ang puti-puti ko daw, anu ba daw ang ginagamit ko…hindi nga sya matigil ng kakukulit sakin that time. And i realized that effective nga tlg sya, even my officemates says na ang puti-puti ko ngayon. But guys, hindi ko sya ginagamit sa face, although pwde kasi face and body soap naman sya, kaya lang mahapdi kapag matagal mo nahilamusan. Saka yun nga lang guys, medyo madali syang matunaw, madalas 2 weeks ko lang sya nagagamit, pero sulit naman ang result, saka it costs less than a hundred, kayang-kaya nyo na yun. Ang ginagamit ko naman sa face ko e yung “MAXI PEEL” facial wash, effetive din sya, hindi ako pinipimple at cooling pa sa face. Tapos, nalaman ko din sa sister ko, niresetahan sya ng derma ng vitamin pampaganda ng skin, sinabi nya yun sakin at nacurious na naman ako…i don’t know if you heard about “CONZACE” yes, VITAMIN sya with VITS A, C, E, & ZINC. Iniinom ko naman yun before I sleep, ang sarap ng tulog ko kahit hindi ako maka 8 hours of sleep, prang kumpleto pa din, I’ve been taking it for years na, kasi nakakawala din sya ng pimple. I have noticed as well as my officemates na pumuputi ang face ko at nagiging rosy. Nung first time ko nga hanapin yung “CONZACE” out of stock parati, kasi nga recommended sya ng derma, at marami tlg ang bumibili dahil effective, kung wala kayo makita, you can try an alternative vitamin which is “VIGOR ACE” yung 2 yun ang nireseta ng derma sa ate ko, but i will prefer “CONZACE” than the last one. Ang hinahanap ko na lng ngayun e yung pampatanggal ng pimple scar, i have tried “PRO_ACTIV” pero wala ding nangyari. Meron akong nakita before na website, na feature na din sya sa KABUHAYAN SWAK NA SWAK ng ABS-CBN, i’m not sure of the name kung THAKADA ba yun..basta effective daw sya at may mga real life testimonials din..

kenzo October 27, 2009 - 9:05 pm

guys… i’m a basketball varsity player,, and vanity is really an issue… usually hilamos lang tapos uwi na pagkatapos ng practice.. pero we can’t deny the importance of face care…

here’s what i do…

1. i wash my face with a green papaya soap..(usually leave it in face for a minute)

2. I dry my face using a cotton towel..

3. I put master facial moisturizer whitening..(soap can dry skin kasi)

then boom…i did that for a month an really saw the difference.. if nasa bahay naman ako,, i do it every 4 hours…:D

well i hope someone would suggest a better routine..

lance October 31, 2009 - 10:26 am

sige i try ko yung dream white

Pao January 25, 2010 - 4:15 am

-oo epektibo ung linya ng Koji-san.. kasali dun yung dreamwhite.. nagswitch na ako sa Koji-san soaps, pati yung Dermasil nila.. mas mura kesa sa Ysa BS pero epektibo rin naman..

Tsaka nung nagwork ako sa cebu wala kasi ako masyado makitang YSA BS eh.. sulit na ako sa Koji-san line… yun nga lang medyo yellow yung undertone pag Kojic acid eh.. pero ayos lang, mababawi na yan sa creams at lotions.

It’s good to be back.. ^_^

Pao January 27, 2010 - 12:19 am

mali pala.. di pala Dermasil.. DEFENSIL pala yung sabon ng koji-san for oily skin, protects your t-zone.. ^_^

cataclysmic January 28, 2010 - 10:43 pm

Correction: Undertone of the skin is determined by race and genetics and not by the soap or any other topical creams/lotions/etc. for caucasians it’s pink. for a majority of asians it’s yellow. for pinoy’s it can be either since mix tayo. just straitening up misconceptions. just use any whitening product that suits you and whatever your undertone is it will just show gradually.

Pao January 30, 2010 - 10:31 pm

pero totoo ba na pag naggugluta ka magiging pinkish daw yung glow mo?

einherjar February 3, 2010 - 1:33 am

hi. nice to be back with a new regimen. for the skin toner im still using the skintel toner. although it’s pricey parang siya lang ang toner n malamig sa mukha and parang sobrang naaabsorb ng face ko lalo yung mga creams. im currently using loreal men active whitening expert. refreshing sa mukha ang cream and it really soothes razor burns. too early to tell kung effective sya o hindi kasi 2 times ko p lang nalalagay. i’ll post again pag may changes n.

einherjar February 3, 2010 - 2:03 am

Pao said:
pero totoo ba na pag naggugluta ka magiging pinkish daw yung glow mo?


mejo may debate tungkol dito. well i’ve tried so many gluta capsules and for me yung met lang ang effective. iba yung glow ng skin, di hagard kahit puyat at pagod, maganda ang tulog. im not advertising met or anything this is just base on my experience. now im not taking met anymore kasi mejo mahal talaga sya. it’s 2300 per bottle and kung gusto mo talaga pumuti, kulang yung isang bottle sa isang buwan.

cataclysmic February 7, 2010 - 2:44 am

NO! it (gluta caps) won’t make your skin have a pinkish tone. Unless gluta caps can raise your blood capillaries to the surface like most caucasians, the answers is a NO! their fairness kasi is pinkinsh and undertone because the of the blood in the capillaries that are covered superficially by almost a translucent skin (depending of fairness, clarity and luminescence – the ability to reflect light back but not like a mirror, that’s way to literal).

lance February 7, 2010 - 9:47 pm

sino naka try na ng top one papaya soap??
nuh magandang whitening cream for oily face??

Janus February 16, 2010 - 4:19 am

Mula sa earlier portions ng thread ko pa nababasa yung Skintel and yet i ahavent seen it sa stores (or baka di ko lang napapansin!) Can you suggest where i can get one?

Ang main problem ko ngayon ay darker skin on my nape than on my neck, nabababadd sa araw pag nakakalimutan kong magpayong and nag worsen pa nung nagboating whe we went to the beach, eh mejo unhygenic pa naman tingnan ang maitim na leeg

einherjar February 17, 2010 - 12:31 am

sa mga watsons mo mbibili yung skintel toner. kind of pricey kasi nasa 140 to 230 yung 2 size nun pero worth it naman siya. malamig sya sa mukha and ok naman ang effects lalo n yung soap.

lance February 19, 2010 - 12:56 pm

hindi ko pa din alam what whitening soap yung gagamitin ko.. help naman po gusto ko yung super intensive whitening soap… hehe


einherjar February 19, 2010 - 10:40 pm

try mo glutawhite yun talaga intensive ang whitening nun. 120 php sa watsons pati n rin skintel whitening soap ok din.

jon May 2, 2010 - 12:54 am

hi po. I need some help.. I have a very pinoy skin. and since I’m kind of hairy, mas mukha akong umiitim lalo na sa arms area. I’ve been using whitening soap and lotion but none of those became effective.. I also tried taking MET, pero wala pa rin nangyare.. Im a sporty guy and I cant avoid being exposed to the sun.. I use sunscreens naman.. I’m courting a girl but she prefers whiter men… she said if only I hav whiter skin, I cud attract more women.. i’m desperate to win this girl.. please help. 🙁

Chris May 2, 2010 - 1:29 am

^^^jon – welcome to Pinoy Guy Guide.

a girl that is worth pursuing is a girl who goes beyond the physical looks. yes, looks are important but she needs to know who you are as a person beyond the color of your skin.

if she doesn’t accept who you are, it’s time to move on. there are literally thousands of pretty chicks who are into the kayumanggi complexion. just look at obagi’s comment # 371 above just before yours.

jon May 4, 2010 - 12:05 am

thanks for the lift..but she never said that I have no chance of winning her.. just knowing that she is into whiter men, makes me want to become one.. i’m kinda desperate with this girl.. yea, it’s true that there are a lot of pretty women outside there who want men like me. but she’s the one I want.. all of us, I presume, would say the same thing.. I really do appreciate responses.. thanks

Pepe Cabrera May 6, 2010 - 6:26 am

The best sa lahat ng na try kong skin whitening soaps is LIKAS papaya soap (nothing beats this!), kaya lang nakaka dry ng skin so you have to use a moisturizer. Pag lalabas ka sa araw, use L’Oréal UV Perfect sunblock with MEXORYL SX & XL (SPF 50), that’s for the face and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer, dry touch – sunblock (SPF 45) for the exposed parts the body, maganda ‘to kasi hindi malagkit sa katawan pag pinawisan. And just don’t forget to take your vitamins especially Vit. C , Me I take 1000 mg. I read this somewhere that Vitamin C can whiten your skin. Pero siempre, avoid the sun if you can.

Verjory May 9, 2010 - 7:22 pm

In accordance with the author’s regimen in achieving a white skin especially for men I strongly recommend of usage of Papaya soap. It not just whiten your skin it gently penetrate its enzyme on the lower layer of skin.It inhibits the melanin formation making skin whiter and smoother.

Aside from Papaya soap, the calamansi extract also is a good natural whitener, it has an anti-microbial property that eliminates the harsh oxidants of the skin in and out.

On the other side, I condemn the author’s belief about the glutathione. Glutathione had already dominates the whitening world. It also enjoys high reputation because of its efficacious promises.
Glutathione is not only a whitener but a master anti-oxidant, liver cleanser and sex boosting pill.

Let’s look at the Glutathione in a better way!

lance May 10, 2010 - 3:47 pm

i use two whitening soaps today..
mestiza and skintel

Crisrock June 14, 2010 - 3:11 am

Im using Beauoxi white glutathione and kojic soap from magic potions – http://magic-potions.com and i could say it help me a lot with my pimple problems. Before i look “madungis” i have tried other glutathione brands but im not satisfied.

nabasa ko halos lahat ng guys d2 are fans of the Nivea Men’s Line.. hehehe para skn i think ang lotion nila nag cause ng pimples sa katawan ko hehe switched to cetaphil lotion/physiogel lotion… as for my face VMV Hypoallergenics (ID line, I believe on a Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize skin care regime) lng tlga and it’s really good but a bit pricey…. Their line of ARMADA sunblocks is great (especially their Face and Body Shield SPF 60, although I only use it for my face and neck)…. guys na try nyo na ba ung Koji-San na Anti Aging soap? kasi ung ginagamit ko ung Koji-San lng tlga (ung nsa white na box)… pareho lng dn ba ung effectiveness nun? Nice blog btw Chris…. hehehe …. email me nlng at robszkiness@rocketmail.com

LOREAL for Men works for me, it’s a bit pricey, though, compared to Nivea. Pero sulit na rin since may SPF component na. Whenever I applied it, I can feel some sensation deep within my skin. Whenever I look on the mirror each day I can see the difference.

Hi! I’m a newbie in this forum. It interests me when I see this stuff, talking about skin care products for men.

BTW Guys, have you tried Kojic Acid Soap? I found this product in Mercury Drugs and I’ve read the label about the soap that it whitens the skin tone besides it cures acne, pimples and it also removes blemishes and pimple scars. Is it really effective?

Jay January 7, 2011 - 10:57 am

BTW, Kojic Acid soap is a product from Japan. I’ll wait for your response guys. Thanks.

almansur February 11, 2011 - 11:03 am

@them..para sure na maalis yang dark spot mo try mo yung kojie san (skin lightening soap)maalis yan!pare!
then follow with ponds und yellow detox!post ka if may nice na result!
natry q ata ok naman xa!
-wash your face then put a little baking soda on your hand then!gently rub on a circular motion in your face,,about 1 minute , then rinse!
-after it!use moisturizer (like ponds detox)..
-try it on a week ,,,if it doesnt relieve your acne.then stop using it.
but i know it will help a lot on you dude!
besides dont eat a lot of fatty foods..because it induces acne to inflammate!
exercise, eat alot of veggie n’;fruits..
sleep at least 8 hours..ok!
dont irritate your skin with a lot of chemicals!!!

yup, almost 2 years nko gumagamit ng glutathione, hindi naman ako pumuti pero mas makinis ang balat ko at nawala ang pimples

jcp June 7, 2011 - 4:10 am

Morning! May itatanong lang po ako.
Pero ang goal ko ay ito, mag-even lang ang tone ng skin ko.

Cases: Darker face, uneven skin tone esp. on my knees and elbows, uneven tone on one side of my arms with the other side (mas naaarawan kasi dati ung sa kabila), maitim din ang kilikili ko, baka dahil sa alcohol na inaapply ko noon just to get rid of B.O., nawala nga B.O. ko kahit pagpawisan pa ako pero maitim talaga underarm ko, oily din ang face ko at maraming pimple marks at active pa rin pimple ko lalo rin ang whiteheads. So anong gagawin ko po, suggestion please.

Worse case: I bought vaseline men whitening liquid soap and vaseline men whitening lotion. Result, nagkapantal-pantal ng maliliit ang buong katawan ko. Angkati, last week lang ako nag-umpisang gamitin yon. Hindi ko alam kong nag-aadjust lang ang skin ko o allergy na ito. Kasi nung una sa arm lang ako nag-aapply nung lotion, doon lang ang kumati, continue pa rin, dumating ung araw na hindi na makati pero may maliliit na pantal (doon sa bawat pore na nilalabasan ng buhok), tapos nong inapply ko sa ibang parte ng katawan pati sa arm, makati ang ibang parte ng katawan ko pero hindi naman ung arm. Pero may maliliit na parang pantal pa rin ung arm ko. Ano kaya yon. Stop ko ba kasi allergy na o continue kasi nag-aadjust ang skin ko.

Thanks in advance.

neil June 12, 2011 - 7:12 pm

tanong lng po pangit po ba gamitin ang ponds? sa lalake un po kase gamit ko d ko alam kung ano maganda.

neil June 12, 2011 - 7:14 pm

ung whitening po sana gus2 ko tsaka oil control tska pra po sa pimples pero parang ang d gaano effective tagal ng resulta

DamianSt.James July 4, 2011 - 7:10 pm

Hi Chris. Nice article since a lot of guys are into whitening. Having white skin is just like anything else, may binabagayan, like if you’re really muscular, it won’t suit you. Also, tanned skin is much more masculine. Wala sa color un actually un tanned na my ‘glow’ pa rin and makinis is much better than sa maputing halatang pinilit lang.

DamianSt.James July 4, 2011 - 7:11 pm

hi there… since birth kulay brown talaga ako walang pagmamanahan kasi brown skin g mother at father ko,,but then nung High school ako nun ako naging skin concious kasi ung mga classmate ko halos apuputi lahat at halos lahat ng Girls sa school gusto ay maputi pag dating sa lalaki.. then i tried using many soap ang lotions.,, 1 year ako gumamit ng skin white not effective at Belo products 1 year also di din effective.. di ko alam kung bakit. pero one time nakakita ako ng forum na kailangan as matapang na product ang gamitin sa skin ng lalake kasi mas makapal balat natin at less sensitive comapare sa Girls. ang skin white at Belo kasi design for girls skin sya kaya mild kaya di effective for men. ngayon 2 months palang ako gumagamit ng Kojic acid soap Kojic acid lotion sa umaga tapos pinapatungan ko ng sunblock at least SPF40 kasi walang SPFung kojic lotion. tas pang gabi gamit ko Hydroquinone contating lotion kasi bawal maarawan pag gumagamit ng hydroquinone products..masisira skin pag naarawan,. tapos aun napaka effective ngayon nga magsing puti na kami Girlfriend ko pero nung una kami maitim ako hamak sa kanya… kasi ung kojic Acid at hydroquinone ay Very strong whitening Ingridients haggang 5th layer ng skin ng lalaki napepenetrate nila.. kojic acid may show gentle exfoliation at first medyo makati pero worth it naman. ung hydroquinone naman prevent production of melanin.. un ung nag cause ng kulay sa balat kaya pag gumamit ng hydroquinone puputi ka agad pero bawal lumabas ng walang sunblock kasi melanin ung humaharang sa uv at UVA rays eh inalis mo ung melanin kaya dapat mag sunblock ka.. at kahit naka sun block dont stay too long under the sun….

Vanity Empire October 18, 2011 - 10:55 am

Hi Mr. chris and to everyone else here, I just checked the exchange of threads, grabeh ang gagaling niyong lahat, i thought it was just only a guy like me who is very much concern in having problems in skin whitening. Tanggapin na natin, even guys during this time are very vain na din. we are very much conscious of our selvesbecause we want to look good also. I really have big insecurities re: skin problem. I really get intimidated with people who have very light fair and glowing skin, especially to guys. It really lowers my confidence especially facing other people, and sometimes, you could hardly please people the way you look. Fact na yun, kasi ang una namang tinitingnan sau, is the way you look. Impression really leaves a mark for anybody’s impression.

I tried so many products but it did not work. When I used Kojic soap, my skin got irritated. I stopped it, the reason why I had those irritations because I did not use moisturizer lotion after using. I tried skinwhite before, and Block&white products, but it did not also work for me, I tried dove for men, it worsen my skin irritation. According to my friend, baka i have daw a sensitive skin… I am using Johnsons milkbath for months na hoping to at least have a fairer skin, but wala pa ring results. Cris, i will try Nivea for men, and other producst mentioned above sana it will help me…

..and cata i saw GT bleaching cream,do you think its effective.?
..it says on its box that it has a peeling effect…

salamat sa mga tips dito, sa ngayon mag 1 week na ako nagpapaputi and maganda nman result… sa tingin ko hindi ko na need mag pills kasi maitim lng nmn kasi sakin ung neck, face at arms ko so..

3 days ako ngmaxi-peel cream #3 every night bago ma2log, tpos day and night kojie san soap (orange bar)… now tigil ko muna maxi-peel tapos ngswitch ako from kojie san to skinwhite powerwhitening soap kasi mas mabango skinwhite and parang may moisturizer ung skinwhite. sa ngayon nghahanap ako ng skinwhite lotion to go with the soap.

happy ako sa result medyo pantay na kulay ng bicep ko at arms hehehe
sa face ko medyo visible na rin ung pagputi.

Black Jack November 22, 2011 - 10:32 am

@kite balmung orca
ung maxipeel cream, exfoliant xa although atm hindi ko pa masasabi kung effective tlaga kc 3 days ko plang gamit.. pero npansin ko during the 1st day after pghilamos ko parang naging tight ung skin ko especially sa “T zone” ng face ko.. during 3rd day parang naminimize ung mga large pores ko, pero di ko nakita na ngpeel ung skin ko kc nklagay dun sa box “no visible peeling”

mamaya mghunt ulit ako ng skinwhite lotion, puro cream nakikita ko eh tapos nakakhiya mgtanong dun sa mga saleslady lol, ma try din nga ung nivea facial scrub bka effective din sakin un.

kite balmung orca November 22, 2011 - 11:49 am

..ahh,nilalagay ata un after peeling para makita ang effect.?
..gumamit kc ako nung Maxipeel exfoliant #2 sa face..till now di ko masabi kung bumalik na ung nagpeel na skin..hahaha
..almost a month na dn ata ang nakalipas na magpeel ako..

..after mg peel hndi na muna ako gumamit ng mga cleanser at cream kasi parang pag gumagamit ako ng cream especially ponds ay nagkkapimples ako..so i stopped it pati ung Myra-e vitawhite moisturizer..mga 2months ng ganun..

..ngaun ang problema ko nlang ay napakadaming pimple mark..sa tuwing ttgnan ko sa salamin parang my pimples pa akong madami though marks nlang xa..

..nitong past 2 days lng ako nag cleanse,i use my Skinwhite cleanser na stock ko kaya madami pa,kapag naubos ko un babalikan ko na lang ulit Master Papaya Cleanser..sa cream naman wala pa akong mapili kung anong maganda..

..curious ako about GT Bleaching cream kaso di ko nabili kc mdyo nakkatakot itsura nung cream nung nakta ko ung trial cream kaya di ako bumili nung cream nila…hahaha

hi, can i have any of your contacts? dami ko sanang itanong ehh.. I am from Davao and I am very much concerned in my skin because I really want to look good… I am using now the Nivea Whitening lotion, so far according to my classmate, pumuti daw ako, pero di pa ako satisfied sa results, kasi i want it to be fair and glowing… Sa face ko naman, grabeeh, halos wala na daw kalagyan ng pimple scars ang mukha ko sabi ng ate ko… gusto ko lang guwmapo at malinis tingnan, kasi madalas akong narereject eh… thanks… hope you could help me with my problem…

kite balmung orca November 23, 2011 - 3:38 pm

..ako i suffer that madaming pimples..noon napakinis ko pa mukha ko using only placenta soap and master papaya cleanser..i have my pics ng mga previous years nung makinis pa..nung naubusan ako nun ng placenta soap ata e i tried other soap as substitute..till that time nagkabreak out na ko for years..i suffered pimples na maliit malaki at cystic..

..after a year nacurious ako sa ponds facial wash..i tried it pati cream pero parang di hiyang saakin..

..till then this past october i peeled my face,i tried many soap to see kung anong gagana ulit..

..binalikan ko ung placenta soap pero ang hapdi tlaga lalo pg my pimples ka..i tried 3 kind of soaps per wash..pero wala,cguro cause din ito ng almond nut..hahaha
..kc kumakain ako palagi,ayan ngat 2 cystic pimples na ang napaglipasan ko at pumutok(sorry if it is kinda grossy hehehe)

..and now flat na sila..isa sa right cheek mdyo sa my bone area at isa sa taas ng eyebrow..

..at heto lagi akong puyat hah pero di ako nagkkabreak out..nattulog na ko 5am or 6am then maggcng 1pm ganun..then parehas ulit till now ganun pa rin ako matulog..

..ang masasabi ko lang base on my exp ay kung my mga ginagamit ka na cream or soap try to stop muna..

..baka kc sa mga ginagamit mo my ingredients un na allergic ang skin mo or so hindi gusto ng skin mo kaya yan nagkkapimples ka..

..try buying a soap ung pang pimples,try mo kung hiyang ka..isa isa muna hah,wag sabay sabay kung my nabili ka mang iba na pang facial wash..then try a cleanser..i dont know any good cleanser since i have only tried master papaya cleanser at now ung skinwhite which tinry ko dati with cream ng ponds,topgel placenta at skinwhite,kablaam pero di ako tinigilan ng pimples..hahaha
..so ayun naimagine ko na hala ayaw ata ng cleanser saakin,o ung cream.?
..till then tinigil ko lahat..

..ngaun i am using soap nlang,kung okay ung soap sundan ng cleanser,kung kinabukasan wlang tumubo or wlang irritation hiyang sayo,saakin kc ganun..then cream pang gabi ko lang ung cream since night cream xa..2nights este 2 sleep ko na xang gnagwa na naglalagay ng cream e wla namang tumutubo..

..atsaka mga pagkain pala,better watch out sa fatty foods especially mga peanut/nuts..hehehe

..maintain cleanliness ng area na lagi mong pnag stayhan especially bed and pillow sheet..kc kahit mapalinis ka sa mukha kung un madumi e dumidikit dn mga bacteria sa face..atsaka cleanliness ng kamay..

..naalala ko muntik na ko mapunta ng derma pero wla..hahaha
..hanggang sa isip ko lang,naimagine ko kung napakinis ko dati cguro kaya ko pa dn ngayon and okay naman na..un nga lang my butas na mukha ko which is cause ng ibang cystic pimples at break out..nkka deepress kapag nakkita ko kc hndi ko alam kung papano ko un mappaclose..

..dont pop out your pimples para di ka dn magkabutas..hehehe

..i hope that is somehow of some help..
..some people could share some better info,pero tingin ko late na din ako,tayo kc ung mga active noon di na maxado nagppost..sana bumalik pa sila…

during my teen yrs ung effective sakin na anti-pimple/acne ay Extraderm solution #4 yta or #3.. ngaun 26yr old na ako wla na ko pimples paisa-isa nlng kung tumubo. first day nakita ko na effect, from shiny red ung kulay ng pimples ko naging dull red tapos unti unti lumiliit tas nagdadry.

pag hindi talaga hiyang sakin ung ibang product after applying paggcing ko sa umaga halos dumami pa pimples ko.

tama si kite balmung, proper diet iwas ka sa mga fatty foods, junk foods, fast foods like french fries… etc

anyway, cno na ba nkatry ng Nature’s Garden whitening lotion sbi ng fiend ng friend ko effective daw kaso nga lang may kamahalan price.

..ayan my pimple ako sa chin.?
..natulog ako kanina wala pa to..zit.?
..pero okay lang,mablis din tong magddry,wag lang cystic,very tragic un..

..i dont know any good lotions,i only have skinwhite and Naturals skin moisturizer Papaya extract 600mL xa..madami na rin..hehehe
..pang moisturize ko lang xa after using kojie san soap..

..and sa kojie san parang di naman ako pumuputi dun e,mga mg 2months ko ng gamit..wala namang maxadong exfoliation na nangyayari and di ko makita na pumuputi ako,parang walang effect..anyway sobrang yummy smell..
..ung dati Silka soap ang gamit ko,for a month very visible na naglight ung skin ko after magbeach,naku sobrang toasted ako nun,sa activity namin na halos 4days babad sa araw tanghaling tapat pa hanggang hapon lahat yan wala ako sun block maski sa beach..after ng 4days nun nagbeach pa kami kaya sobrang itim,pero after using silka soap sa body e mas maputi na ako sa mga ksama ko,pero im not the type na super maputi naman,ung normal lng ba..

..anong soap kaya magandang substitute sa kojie san.?

kei December 3, 2011 - 9:05 am

im not using whitening soap and lotion na. im using KB glutathione. 1month na ako gumagamit at very visible ang effect.

So far ang best whitening soap at lotion na natry ko yung B&W ultima and ung lotion nya 7 days may effect na. maganda din ung vaselione spf 24 tapos indi pa sya sticky.

Gluta na lang ang gamit ko kc ang hirap maghanap ng whitening soap.

kite balmung orca December 3, 2011 - 3:55 pm

..okay ba ung B&W lotion.?
..anong variant ung pnkaeffective at how much..?

kei December 4, 2011 - 7:26 am

Black Jack December 4, 2011 - 6:17 pm

KB glutathione, fake gluta yan tapos may mga side effect pa daw..
watch nyu eto sa youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkIllutCKHI
at 2:38. mas mura nga sya kaysa mga branded like MET pero… alam nyu na!

ako dahil walang budget sabon at lotion lang, tiyagaan lang. skinwhite soap and lotion tapos minsan nlng ako mg kojie san kasi sobrang hapdi na ng kojic acid sa skin ko, makailng beses na kc ngpeel ung skin ko tapos pti lips ko ngpeel na rin.

ung Belo for men gluta soap with kojic acid and gigawhite na try ko na din pero parang makati sa balat lalo na sa leeg ko, di lang cguro ako hiyang.

kei December 4, 2011 - 6:43 pm

napanuod ko na yun. kung fake sya bakit siya naavail sa mercury and indi nga sya l-gluta, glutathione activator sya like MAX-GXL glutathione accelerator nman. malaki ang changes at very visible ang whitening sa kin. mas napapagastos ako sa mga lotion at soaps kaya gluta na lng

Ganito pala ung paginom ko

1cap KB gluta nac
1cap rosehips vitamin c
1cap kirkland vitamin c 1000mg
– 30 mins before breakfast

1cap KB gluta nac
1cap rosehips vitamin c

Lalake sa lalake ang usapan.

Master Facial Scrub Glutathione Plus, tapos after maligo, lagyan mo ng Master Facial Cleanser Glutathione Plus, then pahiran mo ng Master Facial Moisturizer Glutathione Plus. Do it 1 hr bago matulog, at sa umaga bago pumasok.

Yung Belo Men, at Vaseline Men counterparts ok din! Di lang ako nag-Belo dahil mas mahal, at yung Vaseline Men Facial Moisturizer ay oilier sa face.

Sa body, Dove Men Soap Bar, yung Extra Fresh, then Nivea Men Cell Repair lotion, at siyempre most effective, with Calamansi at loofah scrub (200 ML para pangmatagalan, mga Php 302, pero sulit!)

Also, take Enervon multivitamins at Lipton Green Tea. Ung fatty acids, tinatanggal ng tea at liliit pa tiyan mo. Di ka naman papayat dahil may Enervon naman na magpapaganang kumain sa iyo. Plus, some pimples are caused by hormonal imbalance, multivatimins will do the work.

ge February 28, 2012 - 9:39 pm

eto po try nyo. nagdaanan na din ako sa mga trial and error sa mga soap/facial wash. til one night nag surf ako sa net then nabasa ko na effective daw ang baking soda and apple cider vinegar. after ko nabasa un. eto ang ginawa ko.

-facial wash (ang binibili ko un may hydration, celeteq/watsons hydration facial wash un blue) then hinahalo ko sa palad ko with baking soda, hilamos, then rinse, then dry off, then lagay ko na acv 1-acv:8-water, then hinahayaan ko for 5-10 miins, then rinse with water lang. then pag natuyo na lagaya agad ako moisturizer.

gamit ko nga din pala ang ACV sa mga dogs ko, para sa coat nila. pinapahid ko.
nabasa ko lang din to sa net. talagang apple cider vinegar napaka useful and effective!

skin type ko – senstive. lagi nga pala namamalat ang face ko (pag nalamigan, pag matagal sa aircon, pag laging hilamos ng malamig na tubig = namamalat!)

try nyo po yan ginawa ko, effective na matipid pa. guaranteed! hinding hindi ko ito ititigil dahil na try ko tigilan nag bbreak out talaga ako. wala pong mawawala. magalit na mga nag aadvertise dito, pero totoo po yan. haha!

ge February 28, 2012 - 9:41 pm

pahabol po pala. ang apple cider vinegar pampaputi din pala ito. natural po. kung maselan po kayo at maarte hindi para sa inyo ito. dahil maasim po talaga ang amoy sa muka pag nakababad. mawawala din naman pag nahilamusan. nasa inyo nalang po kuhng ttry nyo o hindi. pero halos lahat ng nasabi nyong mga products na try ko na po yan =p

ge February 29, 2012 - 12:43 pm

un mga nivea for men nga pala maganda din, nagamit ko na din dati un whitening un parang may beads/for scrubbing na whitening, kelangan lang sundan agad ng moisturizer kasi nakakamalat ng muka. natry ko na din un oil control, maganda din. pero medyo mahal nivea. un celeteq na may hydration mas mura pati un watsons na may hydration.

sa katawan naman dati ang gamit ko lang un blocknwhite na milk effective un pagkakagawa dati, pero ngayon un bagong blocknwhite na lumabas di na effective, ok din ang likas papaya. pero ngayon medyo mahirap magpaputi pag medyo busy ang buhay mo/trabaho. bilad sa init. napakahirap kahit mag uv lotion ka. un koji san di ko maramdaman na effective. pero ang pinaka effective pag di ka nagllabas ng bahay plus whitening soap. haha
